Method

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Bake yams for about one hour, or until tender when pierced with a fork. The skins should peel off easily when they are still warm.

Peel yams and mash with butter and juice. Spread yams evenly in a square baking dish and smooth the top.

In a small bowl, toss pecans with maple syrup, cinnamon and salt.

Spread evenly over the top of the yams. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until pecans are toasted and the yams are hot and bubbly.
