Baked Yam and Fruit Casserole

3 pounds freshly cooked candied yams (see recipe below)
4 slices canned pineapple in syrup, can substituted pineapple tidbits
3 bananas sliced lengthwise & cut each half in half across 
1 large apple, cored and thinly sliced
1 cup raisins
1 cup light brown sugar
1 stick butter or margarine
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup Triple Sec 

Drain yams and pineapple, reserving liquid.  Layer yams, pineapple, bananas, apple and raisins in a baking dish, sprinkling each layer with brown sugar.  In a saucepan, mix the liquid from the yams and the liquid from the pineapple.  Add butter, cinnamon and Triple sec.  Boil until reduced by half and pour over casserole.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Serves 8.

Candied Yams (recipe)

3 pounds yams, peeled
1 stick butter or margarine
1 ½ cups water
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon nutmeg
Pinch allspice
Pinch mace

Slice yams in half lengthwise if large; leave whole if small.  Put all ingredients into a large pot and bring to a boil over fairly high heat.  Lift and rotate yams with a spatula as they cook to make sure they cook evenly on all sides.  Cook for about 25 minutes with lid ajar.  Drain and reserve liquid.
