Grilling does wonderful things to fruit as it caramelizes the sugars creating a golden brown color and intensity of flavor!

Grilled pineapple is delicious when served as a dessert, alone or with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pineapple
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey omit for T30C standard
  • 1/2 lemon - meyer if available use 1 tablespoon juice

How to Make:

  1. Prepare the grill for cooking using medium-heat. You may also roast the pineapple in the oven. For this option, preheat the oven to 400° and place the rack in the middle of the oven, then roast for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Peel, slice and core the pineapple. Be sure to remove any 'eyes' with a paring knife.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice and honey, and then brush the glaze onto each slice of pineapple, coating completely.
  4. Place the pineapple slices onto an oiled grill and cook until grill marks appear, about 3-4 minutes. Flip and cook for another 3-4 minutes. The pineapple is done when the pineapple becomes fragrant and starts to dry out a little on the surface.
  5. Remove from the grill and drizzle with any additional glaze.

Notes:

Do not overcook the pineapple slices or they will turn mushy, as the natural sugars in fresh pineapple caramelizes quickly as it is is grilled.  Also, watch carefully so they don't burn.
