Grilled Pineapple with Orange-Honey Glaze

Grilled Pineapple with Orange-Honey Glaze
You haven’t lived until you’ve tried warm grilled pineapple… The natural sugar in the pineapple literally caramelizes right before your eyes! A true example of how the simplest of ingredients can create the most decadent dessert...
Serves: 4 to 8
  • 1 large ripe pineapple
  • Oil for grilling
Orange-Honey Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons honey (can also use pure maple syrup)
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice (use fresh-squeezed if available)
  • Dash cinnamon
Preparing Pineapple:
  1. With a sharp knife, cut off the top of the pineapple.
  2. Holding pineapple upright, with a serrated knife, carefully slice off the skin. Remove any “eyes” that remain.
  3. Slice pineapple in half, vertically. Slice each piece again, vertically. (You should now have 4 quarters.)
  4. Remove core from each quarter. Cut each quarter horizontally into approximately 1 1/2-inch thick slices.
Orange-Honey Glaze:
  1. In a small bowl, stir together honey, orange juice and cinnamon.
Grilling Pineapple:
  1. Preheat grill to medium setting; lightly oil to prevent sticking.
  2. Place pineapple slices on grill; lightly brush with Orange-Honey Glaze.
  3. Grill pineapple slices for about 4 minutes on each side, or until light grill marks appear. Watch carefully, making sure not to burn.
  4. Arrange on a serving platter. Drizzle warm pineapple slices with any remaining glaze. Serve immediately.
