Gluten-Free Cinnamon Raisin Yams

-

Three great flavors blend naturally in this satisfying, healthy side dish. The natural fruitiness of raisins enhances the sweetness of yams and the spiciness of cinnamon. Butter or substitute enhances absorption of the rich beta-carotene and minerals in this dish.

Ingredients
  • 3 medium yams, cleaned, scraped and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins, plumped in hot water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter or substitute
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

 

Equipment

Medium size pot.

Process

In a medium size pot, bring a cup of water to boil.  Add cut yams, salt and honey to the pot.  Lower heat, cover and simmer the yams for 15 minutes or until tender. 

Meanwhile, add raisins to a cup of very hot water to plump and set aside.

When yams are soft, add cinnamon and butter or oil then mash or beat with electric mixer until smooth.  Adjust consistency with water, milk or milk substitute.  Fold in plumped raisins.  Goes well with chicken, turkey, pork and ham.  Serves 4.
