 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      pounds        yams -- peeled and cut into
                          -- 1-inch cubes
      3/4  cup           dark brown sugar -- packed
    3      tablespoons   butter -- melted
    1 1/2  teaspoons     ground cinnamon
      1/4  teaspoon      grated nutmeg
    2      tablespoons   fresh orange juice
    3      tablespoons   brandy -- optional
    1 1/2  teaspoons     grated orange zest
    1      cup           minature marshmallow
      1/2  cup           pecans -- chopped and toasted
 
 Place the yams in a 4 quart electric slow cooker.  In a medium bowl, mix
 together the brown sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, and orange juice.
 Spoon the yams.
 
 Cover and cook on the low heat setting 5 1/2 to 6 hours, stirring once.  If
 possible, until yams are tender.
 
 Stir in the brandy and orange zest.  Sprinkle the marshmallows and pecans
 over the top.  Cover and cook 5 minutes longer, or until the marshmallows
 are melted.  Serve immediately.

 NOTES : We omitted the brandy, the marshmallows and the pecans...but this
 recipe is really a keeper!  In fact, I have made it three times in the last
 month and it will definitely be on my Thanksgiving and Christmas menus.
