    Cookin Yams?

    Just curious how you guys prepare your Yams/sweet potatoes?

    I have never cooked them before and am going to try them. The brown rice is getting old.

    Microwave and splenda maybe?

    Wrap the yam in saran wrap that will create a convection if made in the microwave. If I have time I cook several at a time in the oven 350 for an hour or so. Cooked til soft and ooozing sugar juices....It makes the house smell incredible and to me cooked in the oven has a sweeter taste then the micro.

    I use splenda on mine. I love sweet foods and that totally satisfies the cravings..I 've tried the sugar free maple sryrup sweetened with Splenda and found it to have a weird after taste.. However, my wife loves it...
