Ingredients

1/2
fresh pineapple, peeled and cored, and cut into 6 wedges
1/4 cup
packed light brown sugar
60 mL
2 tbsp
butter
30 mL
2 tbsp
rum
30 mL
1/4 cup
35% whipping cream
60 mL
1/4 tsp
vanilla extract
1 mL
6
wooden sticks or skewers, soaked

Directions

Step 1
Thread pineapple wedges lengthwise on skewers. Set aside.
Step 2
Make the rum caramel sauce by placing sugar and butter in small pot over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until sugar melts. Add rum and simmer 1 min. Stir in whipping cream and vanilla, simmer another 30 sec. Turn off heat. Cover and keep warm.
Step 3
On grill preheated to medium-high heat, grill pineapple skewers 2 to 3 min. per side, until hot and lightly charred. Plate skewers, drizzle with rum caramel sauce or serve alongside for dipping.

Tip

Instead of rum, substitute brandy or bourbon in sauce. For added taste, colour and texture, sprinkle the grilled pineapple with chopped fresh mint and coarsely chopped pecans or roasted unsalted cashews. For added richness, dip grilled pineapple in melted chocolate.
