Yield:
8 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 ripe pineapple
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Ice cream
  • 1/2 cup dark rum or 151 proof rum, for flambeing (optional)
Directions
  • Preheat the grill to high. Oil the grate.

  • Cut the rind off the pineapple, leaving the green leaves intact. Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise through the leaves as well as the fruit to obtain 8 slender wedges of pineapple with leaves intact. Trim the core off each pineapple wedge. Have the melted butter in one shallow bowl; mix the sugar, lime zest, cinnamon and cloves in another bowl.

  • Dip each wedge of pineapple first in melted butter, then in the sugar mixture, shaking off the excess. Grill the pineapple wedges until browned and sizzling, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer the pineapple wedges to plates or a platter. Serve with ice cream.

  • If using the rum, heat it in a small saucepan until warm, almost hot, but do not let boil. Touch a match to the rum and pour it over the pineapple. Serve at once.
