    2      pounds        yams -- peeled and sliced
                          -- 1/4 inch thick
    1 1/2  cups          water --   
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    4      tablespoons   unsalted butter
                         or margarine -- softened
      1/2  cup           granulated sugar -- more to taste
      1/2  cup           light brown sugar -- more to taste
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/2  teaspoon      ground allspice
    1      cup           raisins
    2      cups          pineapple chunks
 
 1.  Preheat the oven to 400 deg. F.  Place the yams in a 12- by 12-inch baking
 pan.  Pour in the water and vanilla.  Mix the butter, both sugars, cinnamon,
 and allspice in a small bowl until blended.  Sprinkle this mixture over the
 yams.  Cover the baking pan tightly and bake for 45 minutes.
 
 2.  Sprinkle the raisins and pineapple chunks over the yams and baste them
 with the juices in the pan.  Cover the yams and continue baking until very
 tender and the juices are bubbling, about 20 minutes.  Serve hot from the pan.
