Cook Time45 Minutes
Ingredients
1/2 cup (125 mL) Butter
1/2 cup (125 mL) Balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp (30 mL) Brown sugar
1 tsp (5 mL) Kosher salt
4 Shallots, large, peeled, root end intact, cut in half
2 Yams, large, peeled and cubed
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, bring the balsamic and brown sugar to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the butter and salt and stir until the butter melts.
  3. Set aside ¼ cup of the glaze.
