Ginger and Maple Candied Yams

Directions:

1.
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
2.
Use a fork to prick each sweet potato several times all over.
3.
Put the sweet potatoes on a sheet pan and roast until tender at the center, about 30-45 minutes. Give them a poke with your finger. They’re ready when they give in to just a little pressure. Let them cool slightly, just until you can handle them.
4.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1/4” thick half-moon slices.
5.
Place them in a greased baking dish.
6.
In the meantime bring orange juice, maple syrup, coconut oil, ginger, orange zest and spices to a boil in a small pot.
7.
Simmer until reduced slightly and a syrupy glaze comes together.
8.
Cover the sweet potatoes with the orange syrup and bake the sweet potatoes until the syrup is reduced to a thick glaze and the sweet potatoes are golden brown, about 30 min.
