  • 3 1/2 pounds - slender garnet yams or other yams (red-skinned sweet potatoes; about 2-1/2 inches in diameter)
  • 1/4 cups - Blis maple syrup or other pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cups - (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoons - apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoons - coarse kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons - freshly ground black pepper
  • Streusel
  • 1 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cups - maple sugar (scant 3 oz.)
  • 1/3 cups - packed golden brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons - ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons - (3/4 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • Directions:

    Butter 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Peel yams; cut 1 inch off ends. Coarsely grate enough of yam ends to measure 1/2 cup; set aside for streusel. Discard remaining ends. Cut remaining whole yams into 1/3-inch-thick rounds. Arrange yam rounds in 4 overlapping lengthwise rows in prepared baking dish.

    Bring 1/2 cup water, maple syrup, butter and cider vinegar to a boil in small saucepan. Stir in salt and pepper. Pour maple syrup mixture over yams. Cover baking dish tightly with foil.

    Mix first 4 streusel ingredients in small bowl. Add melted butter and rub in with fingertips until moist clumps form. Mix in reserved 1/2 cup grated yams.

    (DO AHEAD: Yams and streusel can be made 6 hours ahead. Cover separately and refrigerate. Let yams stand at room temperature 1 hour before baking.)

    Preheat oven to 375° F. Bake yams covered until almost tender, about 40 minutes. Increase oven temperature to 400° F. Sprinkle streusel over and bake uncovered until yams are very tender and streusel is golden and slightly crisp, about 35 minutes longer. Serve warm.
