Lately I have been fasinated with grilled pineapple. This is something I created after not finding what I wanted with other recipes. Perfect for a summer barbecue or picnic. Hope you enjoy it!
- 1 ripe pineapple
- 1⁄2 cup melted unsalted butter
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 pint vanilla ice cream (more or less depending on the amount of people you are serving)
- Preheat the grill to high.
- Oil the grate.
- Cut the rind off the pineapple, leaving the green leaves intact.
- Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise through the leaves as well as the fruit to obtain 8 slender wedges of pineapple with leaves intact.
- Trim the core off each pineapple wedge.
- Have the melted butter in one shallow bowl; mix the sugar,cinnamon and cloves in another bowl.
- Dip each wedge of pineapple first in melted butter, then in the sugar mixture, shaking off the excess.
- Grill the pineapple wedges until browned and sizzling, 5 to 8 minutes per side.
- Transfer the pineapple wedges to plates or a platter.
- Serve with ice cream.
This was really good. I also tried it using Splenda instead of sugar and couldn't believe how good it was. Thanks for a great recipe.
Loved it! We didn't have a fresh pineapple, so we used canned pineapple slices. An easy dessert that's perfect for summertime.
Excellent! I served this with homemade cinnamon ice cream so I cut the cinnamon in this recipe in half. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Next time, I might try replacing half the granulated sugar with brown sugar. I will definitely be making this again! Thank you!
