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!

Grilled fruit is a summertime favorite and this grilled pineapple needs to be a part of your menu. It's super tasty! With a hint of orange and a hint of chipotle, the glaze is fabulous. Most of the alcohol from the rum cooks off and adds a richness to the flavor. We love how the pineapple caramelizes with the grilling process. It would add a bit of extra flavor to a hamburger or make a fabulous summertime dessert. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

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

How to Make Nunu's "Danc'n Orange" Glazed & Grilled Pineapple

Step-by-Step

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