Candied Yams and Apples

6 yams
4 apples
1 cup orange juice
2 teaspoons grated orange peel
2 tablespoons conrstarch
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt

Peel and cut yams into desired size pieces. Place in a large saucepan and cover with water; cook until tender. Peel and core apples and cut into wedges. Arrange yams and apples in a greased 9x13 inch baking dish. In a medium saucepan combine orange juice, orange peel, cornstarch, melted butter, brown sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat until thickened. Pour sauce over top. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes or until apples are tender.

[note: when I made this I made 1 1/2 times the amount of sauce b/c my yams were pretty good. The proportion worked well.]
