  • Peel and cut your yams into cubes.
  • Boil your yams until they are soft, but not mushy, about 10-15 minutes. Once they are done remove from heat and drain them.
  • Return drained yams to the same pot and mash, keeping them a little clumpy.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until everything is combined.
  • Serve your Thanksgiving yams or place them in an oven safe dish and reheat later for serving.
