Preheat oven to 400°. Pierce yams with a fork and place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until tender, about 1 hour.
Remove; when cool enough to handle, scoop out flesh from skins and put into a large bowl. Discard skins. Add pineapple, syrup, ginger and rum. Mix well, using a fork to make smooth. Spoon into a large oval dish and top with marshmallows. Place the dish about 6 inches under broiler and brown 1 minute.
