Baked Yam with Apples

Earlier this year, I went over to a church friend’s house to help brew up some apple butter!

I’m really proud of myself for finding it because I pretty much went by, “After you go under the tunnel, follow the road for 4 miles. When you see the county sign, make a right and then drive for about 2 miles. Make another right there.”

This cauldron (kettle) is about a century old. :O

Anyway, a whole lot of apple butter was made that day and packaged into mason jars to sell for the school fundraiser. I bought two from the pastor’s son so I could bring one back here to share with my family/friends. Jun and I decided to use it as a topping for a dessert we wanted to make. I know yams and sweet potatoes are different things, but I tend to use them pretty interchangeably. :O Our Google doc basically consisted of 3 things per day (something with a bunch of protein, something with a bunch of veggies, a dessert) that we met up. :O

This is an excerpt from our Google doc. The green is Jun; the blue is me.
