Slow Cooker Candied Yams – The Magical Slow Cooker


Forget the canned stuff this year! Make these Slow Cooker Candied Yams from scratch.

Slow Cooker Candied Yams

Hello! I am sharing a holiday side dish today for you. My husband adores candied yams and I finally took the time to make them from scratch! In years past I’ve been delegated to pick up the canned yams and often I can’t find them. Now that I know how easy it is to make these from fresh yams, I won’t have to go searching for canned.

I start with thick sliced red garnet yams. I add a cornstarch and water slurry, melted butter, cinnamon, cloves, salt and molasses.

4 hours later the yams are falling apart tender, see below. I then add the brown sugar to sweeten.
