It’s that time of year when it’s peak growing season for Pineapple. On the Joppie’s last trip to Hawaii, we took a side trip to the Dole Pineapple plantation, where you could have anything from a Pineapple Hot Dog, to Pineapple Ice Cream. My wife, Judy, took a ridiculous picture of me with my face behind a big giant Pineapple. It’s a picture I hope never shows up on line! All of that to say we found this recipe for sweet and spicy pineapple, and it’s fantastic. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
Sweet and Spicy Grilled Pineapple
1 pineapple, peeled and cored, cut into long strips
1/2 cup orange liquor
1/8 cup sugar
Spice Guy Radical Rub*
1 bag frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup cherry juice, apple juice or water
In a seal-top storage bag add pineapple, liquor and sugar. Allow to soak for 1 hour. Remove and pat pineapple dry. Coat liberally with rub and grill over medium high heat until caramelized, approximately 5 minutes per side. Meanwhile in a pan over medium heat, add mixed frozen berries and juice. Simmer for approximately 20 minutes and brush pineapple with berry juice.
* A blend of cinnamon, sugar and a touch of chipotle powder works well too!
Thanks go to grilling.com for this awesome recipe!
