These are Ashanti’s cast iron skillet yams. She brought these in one day and I begged her for the recipe for like 4 months:

3 ½ yams, peeled/washed/sliced

1 cup brown sugar

¾ cup white sugar

½ tbsp cinnamon

¼ tsp ground ginger

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

½ tbsp vanilla

1 tsp almond extract

½ tsp salt / a pinch

6 tbsp butter / whole stick

A splash of bourbon (optional)

-Peel yams, cut into slices

-Heat skillet medium low.  Add 4 tbsp water and prepped yams

-Add all dry ingredients. Do not mix!

-Cook for 18 minutes with lid.  

-Add wet ingredients, vanilla and almond extract

-Flip all potatoes.  Cook until all potatoes brown and are fork tender.

-Remove lid.  Cook for an additional 5 minutes

-Remove from heat and cool (sauce should thicken).  Add all butter and a splash of bourbon (optional) cover with lid.

-Optional : top with walnuts or pecans

-Serve!
