Grilled Pineapple

I love grilled pineapple. It's so simple to do and so delicious!  I love grilling peaches and pears and other fruits too because grilling  caramelizes the sugars and creates such intense flavors. That caramelizing just makes the fruit that much sweeter! 

Grilled Pineapple 
1 whole fresh ripe pineapple 
3 tablespoons honey 
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed  orange juice 

When picking out a pineapple, you should be able to smell the sweetness.  The stronger the smell the riper it is.  Smell the pineapple when purchasing. You should pick up a sweet flavor. The stronger the smell, the riper the fruit. Another way is to pluck one of the leaves out of the top. If it comes out freely, you have a ripe one!

Turn the pineapple upside down in an empty container for at least an hour so that the sugar moves throughout the fruit.  Next, cut off the top and a little from the bottom and then stand upright.  Now trim the sides to remove outer skin. Remove any eyes with a paring knife. Slice into rings. 

In a small bowl, combine honey and orange juice and brush the glaze onto each slice of pineapple, coating completely. 
Preheat Barbecue grill. Oil the grill rack or spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place pineapple rings on the grill and cook approximately 2 minutes on each side until the pineapple becomes fragrant and starts to dry out on the surface. 

Remove from the grill and brush with any additional glaze one more time. Serve and enjoy!

Served as a dessert, alone or with a scoop of ice cream
