Barbecued Pineapple

Pay close attention as this dessert is to die for.  I prepared this one on the grill, using a rotisserie accessory from Weber.  You can also cut the pineapple into pieces and barbecue, glaze it and turn regularly.

This dish is best served with whipped cream and plain vanilla ice cream, and it simply melts in your mouth.

Grilled Pineapple

  • 1 whole fresh Pineapple (pick it as sweet as possible)
  • 2.5 dl sugar
  • 2 tblsp cinnamon
  • 1 tblsp ground cloves
  • 3 tblsp butter (melted)
  • Dash of Cognac
  • Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Whipped Cream
Heat the barbecue to maximum. Melt the butter and blend in the sugar, cinnamon and cloves.  Cut the top and bottom off the Pineapple as well as its bark.  Then use a sharp knife to cut diagonal lines to remove the small prickles off the fruit.  Glaze the Pineapple with the sugary blend and grill for 5-10 minutes in a closed grill.  Just before removing the fruit, dash a bit of cognac over to finish it off.  Be careful as the Cognac will catch on fire quick.  Serve with Ice Cream and whipped cream.
