  • Uncover the skillet and cook until the yams begin to turn brown on the bottom (2). This is known as caramelization, when the chemical change happens of the food’s starches converting to sugars.

  • Turn the slices over and cook until the same happens (3).

Beans instructions

  • Fresh green beans are much better and easier to cook when they are “blanched and shocked” first. All this means is that you put the beans into boiling water for about 15 seconds, then take them out and immediately dunk into ice water to stop the cooking process. This seals in the color and partially cooks the beans, making it much faster to finish them in a skillet.
