Candied Yams

3 medium yams (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp flour, sifted
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp orange peel
1 tsp soft tub margarine
1/2 cup orange juice

1. Cut yams in half and boil until tender but firm (about 20 minutes). When cool enough to handle, peel and slice into 1/4-inch thickness.
2. Combine sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and grated orange peel.
3. Place half of the sliced yams in a medium-sized casserole dish. Sprinkle with spiced sugar mixture.
4. Dot with half the amount of margarine.
5. Add a second layer of yams, using the rest of the ingredients in the same order as above. Add orange juice.
6. Bake uncovered in oven preheated to 350° F for 20 minutes.
