Post Grilled Pineapple another one

Grilled Pineapple

Makes 8 slices (4 servings).

1 fresh pineapple
1/4 cup rum
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


Directions
1 Peel the pineapple and, leaving it whole, cut out the
center core. Slice into 8 rings, and place them in a
shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. In a small
bowl, mix together brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger,
nutmeg, and cloves. Pour over the pineapple, cover, and
refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.
2 Preheat grill for high heat.

Rainee, what kind of knife and technique do you use to get rid of the core, without tearing up the whole fruit?

I much prefer fresh pineapple to canned and this sounds scrumptious.

PREPARING A PINEAPPLE

Trim Ends
With a large, sharp knife, slice off the top and bottom ends of the pineapple so it sits level on a cutting board.


Peel
Following the natural shape of the fruit and working from top to bottom, slice off skin in strips; then cut away any remaining “eyes.”


Core for Wedges
Quarter peeled fruit lengthwise. Holding each wedge upright, carefully slice off tough core, and discard.


Core for Rounds
Halve peeled fruit crosswise; using an apple corer (or sharp paring knife), remove tough core, and discard.

Duh, cut it in half first. Makes mucho sense. And here I'm picturing digging down in the full-size fruit and trying to wiggle a knife around.

Good thing it's Friday. Thanks!
