NUNU'S "DANC'N ORANGE" GLAZED & GRILLED PINEAPPLE

DAYLE CLICK

Put my mind in gear for my first adventure in grilling pineapple, which turned out to be a "huge success!" With that in mind, fixed it for our Lions Club Picnic and "everyone" wanted to know how I did it and was asking for the recipe. For a real treat, fix your next hamburger with a slice of pineapple, along with a slice of tomato and red onion ... it's fantastic!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Grilled fruit is a summertime favorite and I can't wait to make this again once the weather gets warmer. Super tasty! Smokey chipotle flavor and sweet orange are the prominent flavors in the delicious glaze. They really bring out the flavor of the fresh pineapple. We tasted it as a dessert and it was sooo good. But, I bet these will be great on burgers or chopped into a salad.

Ingredients

1 large
fresh pineapple
1/2 c
rum
1/2 c
orange marmalade
3/4 c
brown sugar
6 Tbsp
butter
2 tsp
vanilla
1/4 tsp
ground chipotle pepper
1/2 tsp
ground cinnamon

Step-By-Step

1Peel, core and cut pineapple into 3/4-1 inch slices.
2In a small saucepan mix together the rum, marmalade, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, chipotle pepper, and cinnamon. Heat and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Note: Use 1/2 teaspoon of chipotle pepper for an added 'Kick'n Dance Step' if you wish.
3On a preheated "hot" grill lightly oil the grill. Place pineapple slices on the grill.
4With a basting brush, baste the pineapple slices with the 'Danc'n Orange' glaze while grilling. Turn the slices over and baste the other side. Note: The recipe for the glaze/basting sauce is enough to handle the grilling of '3' fresh pineapples.
5Continue basting and turning over the pineapple slices occasionally; grilling for 10-15 minutes.
6Remove slices from the grill and paint some more glaze on them. Leave rings whole or cut each slice/ring in half and serve.
7For a dessert, serve hot with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
