Yams & Apples

This is a sweet and tangy take on your traditional yams.

6 or 8 yams
5 or 6 Roman Beauty apples (if you can't find that, green granny smith or other baking apple will work)
1 scant cup Sugar
5 Tbs. Cornstarch
2 c. Orange Juice
1/2 c. Butter
1 t. Salt

Boil the yams in a large pot of water for about 20 minutes. Yams should be soft but not mushy. Remove from water and after they've cooled, peel and slice into 1/2" rounds. Peel and core the apple cutting into 1/2" rings about the same shape as the yam circles. Layer them in a lightly buttered glass baking dish alternating yams and apples up on their sides. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch then add in Juice, Butter and Salt. Bring to a boil and stir until thickened. Pour over yams and apples and bake at 350 for 1 hour or more. (Note: Can be made ahead and reheated, also, you may want to double the sauce.)
