Baked Yams with Lime & Honey
3 large yams (about 4 pounds)
1/2 cup water
6 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
Juice of 4 limes
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Sour cream, for garnish
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Wash the yams and place in a baking dish with the water. Bake until the potatoes are soft and the skins puffy, about 1 1/2 hours. Set aside to cool slightly (leave the oven on).
Peel the yams and place in a medium baking dish. Add the honey, butter, lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir and mash well with a potato masher. Cover with aluminum foil and return to the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until heated through. Sprinkle the top with sour cream and serve hot.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings
