Pineapple Luau Style (Grilled)

gaynel mohler Recipe

By gaynel mohler gaynel

When having a BBQ I like to include fruits and vegetables. This is a pineapple recipe that is great along side grilled chicken or brats. The sweetness is heavenly and the grilling subsides some of the strong acid the fruit yields

    It is actually cold here today, and going to rain. Got a big BBQ coming up the 9th tho, and planning on serving this. I love pineapple, but the acid tears up my lips , mouth and stomache. If I fix it for the bbq, can share that way :)
