INDIANA APPLE YAMS

8 to 10 large baking apples
1 can (20-oz) sweet potatoes
1/4 cup dark Karo syrup
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
16 miniature marshmallows
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup butter

Heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Hollow out the apples until only a 1/2-inch thick wall remains. Combine the Karo syrup, melted butter, salt, cinnamon, marshmallows, and lemon juice. Drain the sweet potatoes, mash and combine with the syrup mixture. Stir to combine mixture well. Generously stuff the apples with the sweet potato mixture to overflowing. Place the apples in a cake pan or casserole dish and dot with the remaining 1/4 cup butter. Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.
