This is seriously one of the best and easiest summer desserts ever! The sweetness of caramelized grilled pineapple is the star of this recipe…sooo good!

All you need is a big, fresh pineapple (even a bit overly ripe if possible, will have more intense flavor and more juice) a good paring knife, brown sugar, cinnamon (and some rum…) and…a grill!

It is not so difficult to cut, peel and core a whole pineapple. Just cut the top and the bottom off and place the pineapple on a chopping board straight up to cut the skin off. Remove any brown parts with the knife and cut in slices. You can remove the core from each slice. If you’re lucky you can sometime find a peeled and cored whole pineapple in the fresh fruit area of the shops and all you have to do it’s just slicing it into rings.
