The first time I ever had this holiday style candied yams was at the Sand Dunes while RV camping and riding Quads. It was Thanksgiving. One of the contributors to the lavish Thanksgiving dinner brought the yams. My husband said, "these are the best candied yams I've ever had". Find out who brought them and get the recipe. I did and here it is.
Pick 6-8 similar yams in size. I try to pick longer more slender ones. Clean and then place in cooking pot with salted water to completely cover. Heat to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Cook for 20-30 minutes until begin to get tender. Cover and let rest until water is just warm. Drain water, peal away the skin and then cut into 1 1/2" round pieces.
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Layer sliced pineapple on bottom of 9x13" pan. Add yams.
Cream butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add walnuts. This makes a pralines type topping. Spread over yams.
Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Add marshmallows for last 15-20 minutes.
