8 cups of sugar
1/4 cup of water
1 stick of margarine
1 stick of butter
1 tablespoon of nutmeg
Peel and chop yams into medium size cubes.
In a medium size stock pot, add water, then sprinkle the nutmeg evenly over the water.
Next, add the yams and pour sugar over the yams.
Then, place the butter and margarine on top of the sugar.
Cook over medium heat.
Once the yams come to a rolling boil, check periodically.
Yams are ready once they are soft, which you can check by sticking a fork in them.
Yams should not be falling apart.
Once yams are soft throughout they are ready to eat.
