Tasty Tuesdays- Grilled Pineapple

Peel and core your fresh pineapple. Then cut the pineapple into halves or quarters. I think quarters is better because there is more surface area and more of the pineapple can be glazed but that is just me.

Recipe 1-
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon lime juice

Combine and brush the sides of the pineapple and allow to sit for a few minutes while grill preheats. Grill for about 3-4 minutes on each side and then brush with any left over marinade.

Recipe 2-
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 tablespoon honey

Combine and follow instructions for recipe one.

Personally, I like the honey/tangy taste of recipe one, so that is what my husband and I use. I thought I would throw the other one we have used out there in case anyone prefers it. Not my favorite but OK.

Love grilled pineapple . . . but I forgot that I did. We haven't done this yet this summer, so time to go to the store. Thanks for the reminder!

This looks great! My son is always pointing out the pineapple. Now I have some ways to use it. Stopping from SITS!

Yum. We love pineapple in pretty much any form. Remember that time we bought a pineapple and had to borrow a knife that was big enough to cut it? And then we chopped it into small pieces because we had no idea how to actually cut a pineapple? Yeah, good times. :)

Hey girl, here is just another way to try this. I loved grilled fresh pineapple, but I sprinkle it with a sugar & cinnamon mixture. I also like slicing my pineapple so I have more surface area for the sugar/cinnamon.
