A Busy Life

Sorry I haven't written since before Christmas. Here is a recipe to tempt your pallet until I can find time to spend some additional time here. This was one of the Solstice dishes. Enjoy.

Pineapple Yams

2 med. Whole yams
2 cups pineapple juice
2 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp salt
1 14 oz can of pineapple rings or one whole pineapple, cut
6 maraschino cherries (optional)

Bake yams in skin until tender. Peel, slice, and place in bottom of oiled casserole dish. In a small saucepan, dissolve cornstarch and salt in pineapple juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until mixture turns clear. Pour the pineapple mixture evenly over the yams. Top with the pineapple rings and garnish with maraschino cherries. Bake in preheated oven at 350◦ for about 45 minutes.
