Grilled sweet potato

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 pounds Medium sweet potatoes:

1 tablespoon Unsalted butter at room temp
1 pinch Allspice
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste


Grilled sweet potatoes I can do (we'll see about BBQ in a few days). I've never been nearly as successful with raw sweet potatoes on the grill as with pre-cooked ones. A favorite recipe is a molasses glazed sweet potatoes from "Thrill of the Grill," which has a real candied sweet potato taste without being cloyingly sweet:

Peel and slice lengthwise into ½" slices. Cook in boiling salted water to cover, 8-10 minutes. You should be able to get a fork thru but feel resistance, and slices should not break apart - obviously they need to hold up to the grill later. Drain 'em and cool to room temp. (I'll do this in the AM or nite before; remove from fridge 30 minutes before grilling.) Glaze for 4# taters is: Mash mixture with back of a spoon till butter is incorporated

Grill the slices 2-3 minutes per side over a moderately hot fire, then brush with glaze and cook 30 seconds per side to finish the glaze I like a *very light* grate nutmeg to finish too, but I'm then a nutmeg junkie.
