- 3 1/2 pounds slender garnet yams or other yams (red-skinned sweet potatoes; about 2 1/2 inches in diameter)
- 1/4 cup Blis maple syrup or other pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
- 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup maple sugar (scant 3 ounces)
- 1/3 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
Butter 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Peel yams; cut 1 inch off ends. Coarsely grate enough of yam ends to measure 1/2 cup; set aside for streusel. Discard remaining ends. Cut remaining whole yams into 1/3-inch-thick rounds. Arrange yam rounds in 4 overlapping lengthwise rows in prepared baking dish.
Bring 1/2 cup water, maple syrup, butter, and cider vinegar to boil in small saucepan. Stir in 1 teaspoon coarse salt and 3/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour maple syrup mixture over yams. Cover baking dish tightly with foil.
Mix first 4 ingredients in small bowl. Add melted butter and rub in with fingertips until moist clumps form. Mix in reserved 1/2 cup grated yams. DO AHEAD: Yams and streusel can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate. Let yams stand at room temperature 1 hour before baking.
Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake yams covered until almost tender, about 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Sprinkle streusel over and bake uncovered until yams are very tender and streusel is golden and slightly crisp, about 35 minutes longer. Serve warm.
Broc-Cauli: The New Dynamic Duo?!
For those of you who've picked up this week's Crop Share, you already know, SURPRISE, you also got cauliflower! Alright, I'll admit, cauliflower is not high on my list of beloved vegetables. Okay fine, it tops my list of most despised. But I'm trying, I really am and I'm bound and determined to find a preparation for it that makes me realize what everyone else raves about. Thanks to an idea from Valerie, I think I've found it via a broccoli & cauliflower combo. broc-cauli! Sherlock has Watson, Batman has Alfred, so perhaps all cauliflower needs is broccoli!
So with the holiday weekend at hand, here's two "broc-cauli" side dishes to complement your dinner table. First, a warm and rustic Cauliflower-Broccoli Gratin from Eating Well, and then a light and fresh Broccoli Grape Harvest Salad from Eat Yourself Skinny (omit the pasta and toss in your chopped cauliflower to create the broc-cauli effect and a low-carb side dish).
