Candied Yams Recipe
1 kilo yams or sweet yellow potatoes

For the sauce
1 cup white sugar
½ cup water
¼ cup butter juice of 1 orange
½ cup water
1 pandan leaf
¼ cup mango or pineapple jam or orange marmalade
Juice of 2 calamansi, optional
½ cup cooked red sago or red kaon

Wash yams or sweet potatoes well, removing all traces of dirt and grime. Peel and slice into large chunks.

To make the sauce
  • In a large saucepan or work, combine sugar and water. Place over medium heat and allow to boil. Lower heat and allow to caramelize to a rice golden brown.
  • Working quickly, pour in butter, juice and rind of 1 orange, water, pandan and jam. Mix well.
  • Add raw camote cubes and continue cooking on low heat, stirring frequently, until camote cubes are fork tender. If desired, add the calamansi juice after cooking for a stronger citrus flavor. Remove the pandan leaf and rind before serving. Garnish with sago and kaong.
