Yanked candied 'yams'

Well, I don't use yams here and there ain't no candy, but here is my version of this holiday classic. I have married salty with sweet again, forcing candied yams to "grow up" a bit.

Believe it or not, sweet potatoes are as American as apple pie. Native Americans were growing sweet potatoes when Columbus came in 1492, and by the 16th century sweet potatoes were being cultivated in the southern states, where they became a staple in the traditional cuisine.

LEVANT - Turkey day may be a couple months away, but that's not stopping a Levant business from celebrating the famous Thanksgiving bird a little early. The great gobbler was the inspiration for this year's corn maze design at Treworgy's family orchards on Union Street, and it's attracting quite a flock of visitors.

"We come up with the theme around the dining room table," explained Robin Pellerin, retail manager at Treworgy's. "It's my parents that started the farm and we run it as a whole family. We sit around the table and come up with a theme usually at the end of the season. It's my uncle that did the maze design."
