Health and fertility benefits of 'Ol No. 7 Yams
Cinnamon is one of the best ingredients that someone with insulin sensitivity can eat. Half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to be very effective at normalizing blood sugar levels. Cinnamon contains hydroxychalcone, which is thought to enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been suggested that Cinnamon prevents post-meal blood sugar spikes by slowing the gastric emptying rate - meaning that food digests slowly. (Reference: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11506060).
1 long strip orange peel
1/3 cup bourbon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, freshly grated
1 3 to 4 inch cinnamon stick
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup brown sugar
3 cups water
4 large sweet potatoes
Wash and dry sweet potatoes and bake at 400 ° for one hour, until potatoes are soft to the touch. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly then remove skin from potatoes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 °. While the potatoes are baking, combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 to 45 minutes until sauce is slightly thickened.
Slice the potatoes 1/2-inch thick into a medium casserole dish. Pour syrup over them and return to the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes.
Tip: To make this dish faster, bake potatoes the night before, leave skin on and throw in the refrigerator until ready to use.
