Caramelized Grilled Pineapples

Jun 25, 2014 04:00PM ● By Cate Reynolds
Pineapple is a sweet fruit with just a hint of tarty flavors. Grilling brings out more of the natural sweetness. The brown sugar glaze caramelizes on the pineapple, making it a little crispy, a little caramel-like and super flavorful.


1 pineapple, sliced into rings
4 Tbsp. butter, melted
6 Tbsp. brown sugar


Heat the grill to medium high and spray with non-stick spray. While it heats, combine butter and brown sugar until well mixed. Place the pineapple on the grill grates. Use a pastry brush and brush each slice with the sugar mixture. Cook for approximately 5 minutes until the pineapple begins to brown and the sugar begins to caramelize. Flip and brush the other side with the glaze. Cook for five more minutes until the fruit browns and caramelizes.

Makes approximately 9 slices of pineapple
