Kathy Mitchell's recipe (from my mom's recipe collection). If memory serves, this is my brother Jimmy's very most favorite version of yams. I'm personally not a fan but I actually think these aren't half bad (probably because Kathy makes them)
6 to 8 cans yams
6 to 8 apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup sugar
2 cups water
1/2 cup margarine
1 Tablespoon sugar (plus a little)
1. Cook until thickened.
2. Pour over top of yams and apples in baking dish.
3. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes
