Okonkwo was a wealthy man because he was a great farmer. One crop that was HUGE for the igbo people were yams. Yams are grown to gain wealth and also to feed one’s family. They are a symbol of masculinity and ability as a provider.
This is the famous Candied Yams recipe from Sweetie Pie's that is loved by all and comes together in only about 40 minutes. Sweet cinnamon, spicy nutmeg, and vanilla extract make this recipe ooze with all the flavors of the holiday season.
