|Grilled Fresh Pineapple|
This is a simple method to prepare it and the results will be impressive to friends, family and you.
There are a couple of ways to core a pineapple, but the easiest way I know is this method:
1) Remove the outer stalk by simply twisting it off
2) Cut a little off each end of the pineapple so that it will lay flat on a cutting board
3) Cut off the skin by cutting the pineapple length-wise...don't cut straight down. Try to follow the contour of the body.
4) Next, take your knife close to the core and cut straight down slicing off the pineapple into twelve or more pieces.
You will want to marinate your pineapple slices, for cool results, in brown sugar in a glass or plastic container. It doesn't take much sugar.
Sprinkle on and work it in a little with a kitchen brush. Marinate for thirty minutes while you get the grill going. I like a fairly hot fire.
You can place the pineapple directly on the grill, but you find it hard to maneuver them around the grill once they approach the finished stage. They start to get soft.
I place the pineapple on a vented pizza grill, a little Pam applied, so I can easily move things around. You will want to turn them often (sugar burns) as they are cooking with a pair of tongs.
You'll find that it takes a little while for things to cook. When they start to get soft and brown on the outside you are getting there.
Enjoy! Like my favorite chef, best griller in the world, and friend George Hirsch would say: “Know your fire!” I don’t ask that you send me 100K for my BBQ and cooking tips.
