Mattso's Gingery Yams

4 yams
1 teaspoon allspice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup candied ginger, cut into small pieces
¼ cup orange juice *

In a 425 degree oven, in a dry pan, roast yams for about 1 ½ hours or until sugar is caramelized (you’ll see little black rivers coming out of the holes you poked) and they feel soft. Remove skin and in a medium bowl add all ingredients except the candied ginger and mash. Add ginger then stir or lightly mash to combine and evenly distribute ginger.
Spring this recipe!

*Option: replace half of the orange juice with good bourbon like Maker's Mark.
