Review This Recipe
I cubed, boiled, then mashed 2 medium yams instead of using canned and cubed about 1 1/2 granny smith apples instead of the frozen ones. I wasn't sure if the frozen ones came with sugar and spices so I tossed my apples in a ziploc with a little sugar and cinnamon. This recipe has a little baked pie taste to it, yet not that sweet. Plain yams are okay to me but this stuff I wanted to gobble up.
