Preheat grill for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, ginger, and 1 Tbsp of the butter; mix well.

Stir in molasses, pineapple juice, almond extract and cilantro; set aside.

Melt the remaining butter and brush both sides of cut potato slices.

Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender.

Spoon the molasses mixture evenly over cooked potato slices and serve.

When preparing outside, I use my pizza crisper pan to place sweet potatoes on and baste them lightly with sauce during cooking process.
