A great holiday recipe from Iain Stuart that uses two holiday staples, yams and maple syrup!

Serves 4-5


  • 3 Medium-Large Red Garnet Yams
  • ¼ tsp. salt

  2. Sprinkle with salt and nutmeg
  3. Dot over the top with butter
  4. Pour Maple syrup over the yams.
  5. Cover with microwave safe plastic wrap, or even just a paper towel will work.
  6. Cook in the microwave on full power for about 20 minutes. You may want to check them depending on the wattage of your microwave, but cook until tender.
  7. Remove from microwave, and drain the liquid off into a small saucepan. Set yams aside.
