My wife made upside down cake and we still have some pineaple left. What else can I make with it? thx
reduce to correspond with amount of remaining pineapple, 1/2, 1/3?

Pineapple Crisp

1 golden pineapple, peeled, cut in half, cored, and sliced into half moons
1/3 cup dark rum
1 cup sliced almonds
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch ground ginger
3 tablespoons flour
3 tablespoons butter

Cook and caramelize pineapples in non-stick pan until softened.
Add rum and cook off alcohol.

Pulse almonds, light brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, flour, and butter in food processor.
Fill 5-inch round gratin dishes with cooked pineapple and top with crisp mixture.
Cook in a preheated 400-degree oven until brown and bubbly on top, about 10 to 12 minutes.

Yield: 6 servings

Good Luck!
Just chop up the pineapple roughly, mash a fair bit of mint and some sugar together and sprinkle over the top of the pineapple and mix. Simple dessert.

This is really best made with fresh pineapple, it tastes so radically different to canned stuff.

When we grill ours, we cut the pineapple into wedges, slice each wedge along the bottom to one end(leaving it attached at that end). Drizzle with honey and let set for about 30 minutes, then grill. You can also do them in the oven, but they are better from the grill.
