“From 1998 Bon Appetit this yam dish has a wonderful maple glaze that's sweet, but doesn't take the place of dessert, like so many other recipes. The part that makes it special is that you par-boil the potatoes, which ensures that they get done, but still remain soft. We made it last Thanksgiving and it was a favorite.”
