|Granulated sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
Boil 6 large yams, let cool, peel and slice them.
Place in a baking pan.
Distribute 1 cup of sugar over them and sift cinnamon over them.
Put small pieces of butter here and there over the top and add 1 pint water.
Bake in a 350° oven until brown 40 to 50 minutes.
The water, sugar, and butter will form a thick sirup for the potatoes.
