Grilled Pineapple

This is a major treat in our home. This is actually my husband's domain since he is the master of the grill. All I have to do is bring a pineapple home and he does all the rest. The sauce compliments the pineapple so well. Its tropical tang doesn't quite go with the wintery theme of the plate it is sitting on :).

3 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp lime juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
1 Tbsp melted butter

Mix all ingredients to make glaze.

Cut pineapple into 8 verticle strips around the core. Remove the core. Place pineapple strips on the grill (about 400 degrees) and baste with glaze. Continue to baste as you turn the strips to cook on all sides. Slather the strips until all the glaze is gone. Keep on the grill until the pineapple has softened from the grilling/carmelizing.

Spencer grilled this pineapple last weekend during our visit. It was so good, we couldn't stop eating it.
