Grilled Pineapple with a Rum Sauce Drizzle


  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 tsp. butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rum
  • 1 pint of vanilla ice cream


  1. Cut the top and bottom off the pineapple. Begin peeling and cutting it crosswise into 8 rings about 1/2 inch thick each.
  2. Use a spoon or apple corer to carve out the center core of each ring.
  3. Grill the pineapple for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until it is nicely brown and grill marks have appeared.
  4. While the pineapple grills, heat the butter, sugar, and rum in a small saucepan over a low heat.
  5. Continue to stir the mixture until the sugar dissolves (about 2 minutes), and the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove the sauce from the heat.
  6. Place a pineapple ring on each plate, and scoop 1/4 cup of ice cream into the center of the ring.
  7. Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of sauce on top.
