Isu (Spiced Boiled Yams)




Ingredients

  • 2 pounds yams, peeled and thickly sliced (regular yams can be used in place of African yams)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste

Procedure

  1. Place the yams in a large saucepan and add enough water to cover them.
  2. Add the salt, garlic clove, and cinnamon. Bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and cook until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Drain the yams and remove the garlic clove and discard it.
  5. Place the yams on a platter and drizzle the butter over the top.
  6. Sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper (be careful, cayenne pepper tastes very hot) and serve.
