  Thin ginger slices 2 , crushed
  Fresh orange juice 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped crystallized ginger 2 Tablespoon
  Salt To Taste
Directions

Place yams and ginger slices in a large pot with water to cover.
Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the yams are tender, about 30 minutes.
Drain; discard the ginger.
Place the hot yams, orange juice, and sugar in a food processor and process just until smooth. (Or mash the hot yams with a potato masher until only fine lumps remain, then add the orange juice and sugar and continue mashing until smooth.) Remove to a serving bowl, stir in the crystallized ginger, and add salt to taste.
