Cookbook:Camotes Enmielados (Mexican Sweet Yams)
|Camotes Enmielados (Mexican Sweet Yams)
Camotes enmielados, also known as camotes con pilocilo, or camotes enmielados al horno, camotes con piloncilo al horno, is a baked, or stovetop, dessert-style Mexican yam/sweet potato dish. It is traditionally a home-cooked food, not typical restaurant fare. The finished product should have a strong caramel flavor, with a typical hint of bitterness from the molasses component of the sugar used. The sauce should be syrupy and very dark in color. The cinnamon flavor should be an accent, and not dominating.
