    Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add pineapple juice, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir to combine and cook until sugars have dissolved, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Meanwhile, place drained yams in a casserole dish. Add pineapple chunks. Pour sauce over top.
