Grilled Caramelized Pineapple

After falling in love with Grilled Peaches and then becoming addicted to Grilled Zucchini, I decided to try grilling some pineapple. There is a restaurant here in Utah that makes the most amazing caramelized pineapple and after searching the web for a recipe to make my own, I stumbled on this one. It is seriously so close to what they serve at the restaurant and the pineapple just melts in your mouth. I think that this may be my favorite grilled food of all time.

Grilled Caramelized Pineapple
1 pineapple, cut into large wedges or chunks
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon honey

Thread pineapple onto skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak in water for at least 30 minutes before threading pineapple on). Mix together brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, vanilla, and honey. Place skewered pineapple on a large plate or pan. Using a spoon or a brush, thoroughly glaze each piece of pineapple with the brown sugar mixture.
Place skewers on a grill, preheated to a medium-high temperature. Cook for 5-10 minutes on each side, or just until the sugar-glaze starts to caramelize.
Serve warm.
Makes a delicious appetizer, side dish, or dessert.

(You could also make these on your stove top- just heat a large skillet or grill pan to medium-high heat and follow recipe as directed.)

    Grilled caramelized pineapple is my all time favorite thing! Thank you for the recipe, I am no longer living anywhere close to a Rodizio Grill and I have truly missed their yummy pineapple. Now I will be able to make my own when ever I want.
