These were a successful experiment using Garnet yams and Japanese sweet potatoes, maple syrup, and a delightfully addictive chipotle-and-pumpkin-seed based hot sauce from Rancho Gordo, called Felicidad Chipotle Salsa. This salsa has quite a bit of pep to it, and may be a little intense for some. Rancho Gordo also makes a mild sauce that would work well in this recipe.
Oven 450 degrees F
Serves 8 generously
4 garnet yams, peeled and cut into 1 inch segments
4 Japanese sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 inch segments
1/2 tsp salt
3 T Felicidad Salsa
3 T dark amber Maple Syrup
