Recipe by Deborah Madison

Apricots are quite delicious with yams. Leave the ginger in big pieces and
pull it out later, or finely chop it and leave it with the yams, as you

If the skin on the yam looks firm and smooth, scrub the yam. Otherwise,
peel it.

Cut the yam into rounds slightly less than 1/2" thick, and cut each round
into quarters, or sixths if it is very large. Combine all the ingredients
in a small saucepan, cover with 1 1/2 C water, bring to a boil, then
simmer, covered, for 1/2 hrs. Check the pan and add more water, in small
increments if necessary, until the yams are completely cooked, another 20
minutes or so. Allow whatever liquid is left to boil down until a small
amount of sauce is left. Pile into a bowl and serve.

Variation: Whip the yam-apricot mixture briefly in a food processor to make
a puree.
