Even though I have a strong love of chocolate,
my favorite desserts usually always involve fruit.
I am particularly fond of pineapple.
It is sweet, tart and always reminds me of a vacation of some sort.
Grilling pineapple is definitely one of the ways that I enjoy it the most.
When you cook any type of fruit on the grill it really intensifies it's sweetness.
Pineapple becomes extra-delicious, almost buttery.
Grilled Pineapple with Brown Sugar Rum Sauce
olive oil spray
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup rum
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
vanilla ice cream
Preheat the grill to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the pineapple with the olive oil. Do not overspray (you are using an open flame). Grill the pineapple until browned on both sides.
Remove from the gill and place tightly in foil.
Meanwhile to make the sauce--melt the butter in a heavy saucepan. Add the rum, brown sugar, and vanilla. Cook until the sauce reduces and thickens.
Serve the pineapple with a scoop of ice-cream and top with the sauce.
