Aunt Sugar Mates Great Yam Pone By CECILY BROWNSTONE Associated Press Food Editor DEAR CECILY: Ever since you asked me whether I had an extra - good recipe for Yam Pone, I have been trying to remember just how Aunt Sugar --mv great-aunt and one of the best" cooks in the family--makes hers I couldn't figure out her secret touch, but I did recall peeling the yams and grating them medium-fine -- a "must. Finally I called my Aunt, who lives in the deep South. S h e doesn't use recipes much. She can tell you what she does and she can make you do it her way because she stands at y o u r elbow to see that you do. But this time, seeing as how she s in Georgia and I'm in N e w York, she told me how to go about it without her at my S ' Aiinl Sugar's Yam Pone may be eaten as an accompaniment to pork or ham or as a dessert. It may be served hot or cold. It's up to you. And the recipe i s ' a big one: that's because Aunt Sugar always wants some for the family, some in case company comes and some for any friend who's not feeling up to snuff It's not uncommon for an ill neighbor to say, "If I just hncl some of Aunt Sugar s cook- in" I'd be up and around in n o ' time." In the S o u t h , discriminating folk (hinkty people) say. "I don't eat everyone s conking." No one ever says that of Aunt Sugar. Even her leftover biscuits are relished. And no one makes Yam Pone quite like hers. -Mrs. P. DEAR MRS. P. You said it! Aunt Sugar's Yam Pone is out of this world.
