If your family likes pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, or pumpkin cookies. Use the sweet potatoes or yams the same as you would pumpkin. It turns out great! You can also heat, drain, mash with butter add salt and pepper and serve instead of white mashed potatoes.
In my opinion there is nothing better than traditional southern candied yams. To one large can, add one cup brown sugar, one stick butter and bake until they start to brown on top. To make them even better add pecans and/or one small can crushed pineapple. Or you can mash them, add one small can of crushed pineapple and put marshmallows on top to toast. Or you can just mash them and add butter and salt.
Healthy meal for your dog. Yams, little sweet butter, canned mackerel, whatever veggies like broccoli, green beans, carrots, peas. No corn. Corn is not good for dogs in that it messes with their immune system. Causes bad skin and organ problems. It is almost always the first ingredient in grocery store dog kibble and canned foods also. It is so easy to prepare meals in bulk for your dog. Brown rice, oatmeal, and farm eggs (if available). Yams are a very preferred food for dogs and they love them. You will find yams in specialty canned dog foods.
Google recipes using canned yams and you will find all kinds of recipes, most of them you use either sweet potatoes or yams.
