  • Place camote in a large pot and cover with water. Add salt and bring to a boil. Cook over medium heat until crisp-tender, about 10 minutes; do not overcook. Drain and transfer camote to a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  • Combine pineapple, brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a bowl; pour over the camote in the baking dish and toss to coat. Cover with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until soft and bubbly, about 1 hour. Remove aluminum foil and bake 15 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

You may substitute fresh yellow yams for the camote. Feel free to use fresh or canned pineapple.
