Can I Get to the Yams?

Can i get to the yams is a popular song written by American rapper Fetty Wap that features Masego & Devin Morrison. Released before Thanksgiving 2022, the song was a hit on TikTok where people sang passionately and used it in horny posts. The lyrics of the song tell of a desperate man who wants to eat sweet yams.

Although it is easy to make candied yams at any time, the recipe reaches its peak popularity during the holidays. It is not hard to see why: they are a sweet side dish that goes well with most main dishes, and can be prepared ahead of time for special events.

This recipe for Candied Yams is an easy four-ingredient recipe. First, wash and cut yams into small cubes. Then parboil them in boiling water for a few minutes. This is only partially cooking them; they will finish in the oven. Then drain the yams and pour them into a baking dish. Sprinkle the top with brown sugar and cover with marshmallows. Bake and enjoy!

Unlike the potato, the humble yam is not a staple in the diets of people living in the African ghetto. Nonetheless, like the yam in the popular children's story, it is a symbol of hope for those who struggle to get by on the edge of society. This is why the yam, as food activist Michael Pollan writes in "Food Rules: An Eater's Manual," is a silent scream that urges us to eat well and respect nature.
