1 lrg. pippin or granny smith apple, peal and slice

A Family Tradition

Spread apples and top with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
In an 8x8 casserole oven dish, alternate slices of yam and apples in rows. Top with pecans.
On the stove, combine yam juice, butter and a dash of cinnamon and simmer.
In a 350 degree oven, bake for one hour, basting (4 times total) initially and every 15 minutes. Just before serving toast marshmallows on top.
This dish can be cooled, stored in fridge (before marshmallows are applied), keeps well, approx. 5 days. This doubles in a 9x13 easily.
