Grilling adds a subtle smoky flavor and brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit. Serve with the main course or as a dessert over ice cream. Pineapple is excellent by itself or with this delicious sauce.

Directions

  1. Cut the top and bottom off on a fresh pineapple. Take the knife run it down the sides of the skin. Cut the pineapple in wedges. Discard the core.
  2. Melt the butter and rum together.
  3. Place the pineapple on the grill and brush with the rum butter mixture.
  4. Grill until nice grill markings are on the pineapple, about 15 - 20 minutes.
  5. Options:
  6. Kebobs: Cut the pineapple in chunks and thread on a wooden skewer (soak the wooden skewers in water first to prevent burning).
  7. Kids: omit the rum, and use just melted butter.
