    Loved your yam recipe on Bruce’s can few Years ago.
    It left sweet potatoes in chunks (not mashed) and was a favorite. Please send me this OLD favorite if possible.

    My all time favorite side. I lived in Florida for a few years and discovered recipe on the side of can. Never wrote down because it was always there. Moved back to NY, the cans up here didn’t have them. Thanks so much.

    every year i run all over town looking for your yams , if im lucky i might score 1 or 2 cans , but most times i cant find them. also i have only seen the large cons of yams . i never knew you made other products, such as pie filling . i live in brantford ontario canada ( bummed out )

    I don’t like yams/sweet potatoes very much at all. However, this past Thanksgiving, I discovered this recipe on the back of my Bruce’s Yams can and decided to give it a try. I am hooked! I absolutely loved this recipe and would highly recommend it to everyone. It’s a lovely contribution to your Thanksgiving/Christmas Day traditional dinner or any dinner, for that matter.
