Grilled Pineapple Rings




Steaming pineapple rings hot off the grill are a juicy treat. I used nested fluted cookie cutters to make these pretty rings, but feel free to cut the pineapple any way you’d like.

1 large ripe pineapple
3 Tablespoons melted butter
½ teaspoon honey, warmed
Small pinch of salt

Preheat the grill to high.

Cut the top and bottom off the pineapple. Place on the pineapple on its side and cut into 1 inch thick rounds. Using small and large round cutters core the pineapple and trim the edges.

In a small bowl, mix together butter, honey, & salt. Brush both sides of the pineapple rings with glaze.

Place pineapple wedges on the grill and cook until grill marks form. Turn rings over and repeat.

Notes:
1. Pineapple will get mushy if cooked too long. Just sear and warm through.
2. 1 teaspoon brown sugar can be substituted for honey.

If you try this recipe, set a couple pieces aside for breakfast! The pineapple macerates overnight and gets super juicy and sweet.

I've been grilling pineapples for a few years now and have discovered they are *very *very good covered and grilled in your favorite gourmet (or not) bbq sauce. Especially spicier ones.
