I have two recipies for your. Unfortunately neither is for candied yams,
but I thought that you might consider one of them.
Sweet Potato Casserole
2 cans (17oz. each) sweet potatoes (not in syrup), mashed
Or 4 - 5 cups of fresh cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup dry sherry
6 tbsp. butter softened
1 tsp. freshly grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash cayenne pepper
4 eggs, beaten
In a large bowl, beat sweet potatoes, milk, sherry and butter with an
electric mixer until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and beat well.
Pour into greased crockpot. cover and cook on high setting for 1 hour, then
turn to low setting for 3 to 4 hours.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
from "Rival Crockpot Cooking"
(this is an oven recipe, but I can't see why you couldn't do it in a slow
2 cans drained sweet potatoes
1 can crushed pineapple
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
Mash yams, add pineapple, salt, brown sugar and butter. Mix well.
The original recipe then says to put into a casserole and bake at 375 until
Likely, you could spray the liner and cook on low for 3 - 4 hours (I tend to
use shorter cooking times because I find my cooker is a bit hot).
