Nature’s Candy

I’ve been wanting to make this one for ages, and I finally had made time the other night to cook (aka finally ran out of free food and went grocery-shopping). Recipe adapted from here! The only thing I changed = adding a purple yam (from Jun!). I found sweet potatoes on sale for 33 cents/pound, so it had to be done. This is amazing and super-cheap to make! I may add it onto the list of Thanksgiving dishes to cook up for the band. :O (Most of us are sticking around over break, so I’m hoping we can get together for food. :D
