With only 3 ingredients this is just about the simplest and most refreshing appetizer you can serve. One tbsp of nutmeg sounds like a lot but don't be afraid to try it. The flavour works very well with the pineapple. This recipe comes from More Fun and Flavour with Spices


  1. Drain and chill the can of pineapple or if using fresh pineapple, cut off peel and slice in thin slices then cut slices into wedges.
  2. Combine sugar and nutmeg in a small serving bowl and place it in the centre of a serving plate or small tray.
  3. Place pineapple chunks around the bowl and stick coloured picks into them, ready for guests to dip in the spiced sugar.

Just perfect! I made this as written and took it to a meeting to share. Everyone raved about how good it was and how much they loved the sugar-nutmeg dip. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT7-Pacific Islands.
