I'm not a fan of plain grilled pineapple. I like to coat them in some maple syrup, cinammon and rum. Grill them in that, then dribble the remaining sauce all over it, served with banana and strawberry, both grilled. I like to have this as a dessert accompanied by some sorbet, preferably orange or lemon/lime. I like to mix all this in a dessert bowl with warm chocolate sauce over it if requested.

no extras necessary, imo. not even oil, if your grill is clean.

grilled pineapple is fantastic, as well as grilled peaches, mangoes, plantains, apples, and pears, my other favourite grilled fruits.

after grilling (getting that char and smokey carmelized sugars), if you want to add or toss in a pan sauce of citrus and sugar, even a flambe', then so be it. fresh herbs like sage, thyme, or basil will add another dimension to the dessert.

don't forget the ice cream.

I used to add goodies to the pineapple, but finally found we love it just plain, pure! Also, one night I didn't clean it or core it, just sliced into wedges and put on the grill - WONDERFUL! The core was even tender to eat - and it has so much flavor to it.

bk - I used to have a 'grill pan' threw it away after it collected enuf dust... ;)

Have any of you tried Del Monte's new Golden Pineapple? It is so sweet and succulent! If you run across it, give it a try...you'll be glad you did.

Marinade them in some dark rum or other liquor of your choice, then throw 'em on the grill.

No problem. Pineapple is great to be grilled or fried, with other foods, basted or tossed up on the grill with a little oil. Maple syrup, cinammon and rum with the grilled pineapples and other fruits takes a little more work but I love it. Alternatively, use maple syrup and Goldshlagger. It's this cinammon-flavoured liquor with golden, edible, tasteless flakes. Use it if you don't have cinammon or want something else.

Brushing the pineapple with a oil or a glaze is not necessary. But depending on the dish you are making a glaze can enchance the flavor. Personal when I grill pineapples I dont brush with anything I do however dizzle them with a little honey butter right when they come off the grill.

There is a couple of thing you can look for.

If you press the pineapple lightly with your finger it should have a little give to it. You can also tap the pineapple with the palm of your hand the sound that it makes should be muffled, not hollow sounding.

Avoid pineapples with spots or darkend eyes, yellow and wilting leaves, or if there are overly soft spots.

Hope this helps
