Many thanks to Angie Davis for sharing this special Kwanzaa recipe.

The whole family can explore different flavors, and use KUUMBA (kwanzaa principle of creativity) to decorate their yams. A fun and delicious treat!

Wash yams thoroughly.

Rub yams with vegetable oil.

Place in uncovered shallow baking dish.

Bake approximately 45 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork.

Allow to cool for ten minutes.

Children will explore a variety of tastes by adding different spices and/or fruits to their yams.
