EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

If your home is this year’s holiday gathering spot for family and friends, you can double or triple this recipe and cook it in a 5- to 6-quart cooker. And it will stay warm for second helpings.

Many varieties of sweet potatoes are available, but a true yam is not available in our supermarkets. The variety of sweet potatoes with dark orange skin is often labeled as “yams.” The very light-colored sweet potatoes are not as sweet and are drier than the darker-skin ones. We like the darker-skin sweet potatoes (or “yams”) for this dish because they not only make a richer-colored dish but also a tastier, sweeter one.

To toast nuts, bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350ºF oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
