Cooking with Rum

I went on vacation recently and I've got a little too much rum leftover. I'm hoping to find some great ways to use it up, and I'd like to stay away from baking and desserts, if possible.

Does anyone have any great recipes for using rum as a marinade, or as a sauce? I'm leaning towards grilling, but I think that a frying pan would be fine for anything that I want to cook.

For some reason, ham and pineapple sound like they'd take on a rum flavor well. I'm up for other suggestions too.

Ive been marinating fresh pineapple slices in dark rum, brown sugar and gochujang all summer.

While I've been serving it as a dessert with vanilla ice cream and some of the marinade drizzed on top, I'm going to experiment with chicken and pineapple kebabs this weekend with dark rum, gochujang, Korean soy sauce and garlic.

Oh wow...that pineapple sounds delish Jenny! I adore grilled pineapple. At first I thought that you were marinating it all summer. I'll try it for a couple hours.

Its really good actually. The gochujang adds heat, a bit of sweet and salt and umami

I finally found the Gochujang after your recommendation Jenny. We're both sold on the flavor of that stuff...wow!

I put it in the custard for trifle but if you want meat this should hit the spot

All summer huh? Have you been sipping that rum instead of using it for a marinade? And not all summer!

it's great to add to a caribbean style brine for pork chops.

try a mix of dark rum, bay leaves, lots of garlic, some citrus, salt, sugar, allspice, and cloves, then marinate the pork chops (loin or sirloin end) overnight.
