What to do with can of crushed pineapple?

I've had a can of this stuff in my cabinet for at least 6 months now..........what the heck can I do with it. I'd like to avoid having to go to the store for any ingredients so something really good and simple that requires just common items out of the pantry. Thanks!

Here's what I've done. It's a Cobbler for Dummies.

Spread your can of pineapple over the bottom of a lightly greased casserole dish (a square 8x8 brownie pan works fine). Sprinkle a box of DRY Jiffy yellow cake mix (the little size, not the regular Pillsbury or Duncan Hines sizes) over the fruit.

Drizzle a stick of melted butter over the top and bake at 350 until it's looking and bubbling the way you like it.

EXCELLENT with vanilla ice cream!

Those recipes look really great, crewsk!

I think a nice glaze for ham, with some brown sugar and butter, would also be a good choice.

Maybe some fruit chutneys? Or a nice thickened pineapple sauce for ham, with some raisins, a little nutmeg and cinnamon?
