Mashed Yams with Clementines



  1. Bake yams at 400° for about an hour until soft.
  2. Slit yams lengthwise to scoop out pulp and mash them. (Note: do not skin them otherwise stringy parts will result)
  3. Add the butter and the juice from the clementines, and blend together.
  4. Add the nutmeg. (Note: it will taste like too much until the cinnamon and zest are added).
  5. Then add the cinnamon, and last, add the zest.
