Candied Yams


These are the real thing baby! They are super simple and were SO yammy... uh, I mean yummy! :)

All I did was peel and slice the organic yams and place them into a large Ziploc bag with 1/4 cup of maple syrup powder and then shook the bag. The natural juices from yams will mix with the maple syrup powder and make the yams "gooey". I then placed the slices of yams on my Excalibur Dehydrator tray and set the dehydrator to 105 degrees for two days. When they were done, I had a gooey, chewy, super sweet treat.
I found out that my dogs LOVE the yam peels, so I am working on a recipe for organic, raw, yam doggie treats. That one should be fun! I'll let you know how it goes....
