Barbados Sweet Potatoes
2 large sweet potatoes
1 T vegetable oil
2 T unsalted butter, melted
1/2 t chile powder
1/4 c packed dark brown sugar
3 T grated fresh ginger (easiest way to peel it is with a spoon)
2/3 c orange juice
2 T lime juice
1 T Jamaican dark rum
1/2 t ground allspice
Prick the sweet potatoes several times with a fork. Microwave them til they're done. The amount of time will depend on the size. Slice them about 1/2" thick. Lay them in a buttered cast iron skillet if you're doing them on the grill or a buttered oven-proof dish if you're going to bake them.
Make a sauce with the rest of the ingredients. Pour the sauce over the potatoes.
Cover your skillet or dish with aluminum foil. If grilling, grill them covered for about 10 minutes on direct heat. If you're baking them, do so at 350 for about 15 minutes. No matter which cooking method you're using, remove the foil and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes.
