  1. Place yams into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  3. Return yams to the cooking pot, and mash with juice until smooth. Pack mashed yams into a 3 quart casserole dish, dot with butter, then sprinkle with brown sugar and nuts. Loosely cover with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until hot and bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes.

This recipe is recommended. I added a pinch of cinnamon. My family liked it.

We had a Hawaiian themed dinner. This was good for the theme, but I prefer traditional sweet potatoes. I don't care for macademia nuts, but in this dish, it was pretty good.

I liked it! I added some leftover coconut milk (about 1/2 cup)and mixed it with the pineapple juice instead of orange juice. I also added cinnamon. I prefer it over the traditional marshmallow yam casserole.
