1 pineapple, cut lengthwise into wedges 2 kg
4 bamboo or wooden skewers
aluminum foil
2 tbsp butter, unsalted 28 g
2 tbsp brown sugar 24 g
1 tsp gingerroot, grated 4 g
2 tbsp rum 30 mL

Before you start

Soak the skewers in water for 15 min to prevent them from scorching on the grill.


  1. Using a large, sharp knife, cut the pineapple lengthwise into 4 wedges, leaving some leaves attached to each wedge for a nicer presentation. Cut out and discard the central core if it is hard. Using a curved, or paring knife, carve out a "boat" by cutting between the flesh and skin to release the flesh, but at the same time leaving it in place. Slice the flesh crosswise to make thick chunks.
  2. Push a skewer through one end of each wedge, into each pineapple chunk, then out to the other end, to hold the pineapple together during cooking. To prevent the leaves and the ends of the skewers from being scorched on the grill, they may be loosely covered with aluminum foil.
  3. Melt the butter either in a microwave oven or on the stovetop. Add the sugar, grated ginger, and rum, then brush the mixture over the pineapple.
  4. Cook the wedges on the grill for 4-5 min, or in a broiler pan in the oven. When done, place the pineapple on a plate, pour the remaining mixture over the top and serve.

Wonderful flavor! I made it with an amber rum (Bacardi Gold). I couldn't stop sucking on the rind when I was done. o.o;
