2 large yams or 4 small
Raw or Pastured Butter
Large handful almonds (chopped or crushed)
Fresh grated ginger root
Preheat oven to 400. Poke holes in yams with a fork and add to the oven in a pyrex dish. Bake for 45 min to 1 hour or until soft.
Take out of the oven and slice down the middle. Add butter, crushed almonds, and grate fresh ginger over the top (Not too much!)
Yams were first cultivated more than ten thousand years ago in Africa, and today there are more than six thousand species of yams. Medicinally, yams help arthritis, asthma, spasms, help regulate menses, assist in preventing miscarriages, and simple peptide substances bind with heavy metals like cadmium, copper, mercury and lead to help detoxify the body.
Some yams contain diosgenin, which is used for treating fatigue, inflammation, spasms, stress and colitis.
