Candied Yams

Recipe by Chef Marvin Woods


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
  • ½ cup agave
  • 2 fresh lemons (juiced)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • pinch kosher salt 


Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. While butter is melting, in a small bowl combine agave, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add sliced potatoes to melted butter and turn to coat. Drizzle glaze mixture over potatoes, stir to coat. Cover skillet, reduce heat to low. Stirring occasionally, cook for 50-60 minutes (depending on how thick you sliced your potatoes), or until potatoes are tender.
