For some people candied yams are as much a part of the Thanksgiving dinner as cranberry sauce or pumpkin pie. There are a number of recipes out there, many of them based on how the writers' mothers "used to make them." But the main elements of what is essentially a simple dish vary little. The result is a dish that is at once rich, tangy and of course sweet.
