Grilled pineapple… heavenly!

Grilled pineapple is so simple yet so delicious that it is mind blowing!  Most fruits are just too fragile for grilling.  Pineapple is an exception and makes for quite a treat. This very simple and elegant dessert is light and refreshing.

Grilling does wonderful things to fruit as it caramelizes the sugars creating a golden brown color and intensity of flavor.  The fruit is sweet to start with and the glaze caramelizes and makes it taste like an exotic finish to any outdoor dinner.

The sauce is incredible.  It is a buttery brown sugar cinnamon glaze.  When the pineapple cooks on the grill, the sauce caramelizes and becomes absolutely incredible on top of these!  The pineapple stays juicy and grills to perfection.  You will be amazed with your first bite!
