Directions:
Put un-peeled yams in large pan. Cover with water & cook until "fork tender". When cooked, drain water & set yams aside to cool. When cool, slide the peels off. Slice the yams lengthwise and place in an oblong, buttered glass baking dish.

Combine brown sugar, butter & salt in large sauce pan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly until mixture begins to thicken to the consistency of pancake syrup.(Be sure the mixture doesn't boil over & get sticky stuff on your stove) Pour mixture over yams and bake at 300 degrees until yams are saturated with syrup mixture, about 30 - 45 minutes.
