Barbecued Pineapple! Serve in a bowl or a banana boat with pineapple on either side and a scoop of ice cream or two on top and drizzled with juice glaze. You may substitute juice (1/2 cup) for the sugar and rum part of the marinade.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • ¼ cup rum
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  1. Not as good as I had hoped. Although the pineapple was sweet and I followed the recipe exactly it was disappointing. It is similar to Bananas Foster but not as good.
  2. Made this twice now. Oddly enough the pineapple that looked the most burnt tasted the best! The first time I actually dropped the cloves for more cinnamon and used dark rum but only because I didn't have any cloves and the first bottle of rum I found was Meyer's.:) It was requested of me again - Read more ...
  3. Delicious!!! I left out the rum - as I was serving it to my children. Instead I substituted some fruit punch and only used brown sugar and cinnamon. Fantastic! Super seet and super juicy!
  4. This was excellent. All I had in the pantry was Myers Original Dark rum so I used that and boy howdy was this ever good. The rum was not to strong after cooking and it had a nice carmelized glaze to it. I served this with grilled pork chops and strawberry spinach salad from this - Read more ...
  5. We followed the recipe and it turned out delicious! Put over ice cream poured additional rum on the ice cream and ate it all. Yummy!
  6. I sprinkled the dry spices on the pineapple, drank the rum, and called it a day. (wink wink)
  7. gooo-oood! i didn't marinate it just fried the spices up in a saucepan with canned cubed pineapple (omitting the rum and just using a little juice from the can) and served it over a spinach salad. yummy. i will definitely make it again!
  8. I omitted the rum because I didn't have any and grilled it on my George Foreman grill at 400F. (my grill has temp control) I served it with a big scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. Yum!
  9. Easy and everyone was impressed. I used orange juice instead of rum and 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the others because it was all I had. Delicious.
  10. Oooh good! I'll be making this again. I marinated the pineapple in a ziplock bag in the fridge and "grilled" it in the oven. Delicious and good with ice cream.
