|2||large (about 1-1/2 pounds) sweet potatoes or yams|
|3||tablespoons packed brown sugar|
|2||tablespoons softened butter, divided|
|1||teaspoon ground ginger|
|2||teaspoons dark rum|

- Pierce potatoes in several places with fork. Place on paper towel in microwave. Microwave on HIGH 5 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender, rotating 1/4 turn halfway through cooking.
