Having lived in the islands I have a particular fondness for fresh pineapple recipes. While I lived on Oahu I learned the easiest way to cut a pineapple. Once you gain the confidence to cut a fresh pineapple you’ll never forget how and it will expand your ability to use fresh pineapple in many affordable pineapple recipes.  How about Mojito’s with pineapple , Hawaiian Beach Smoothiescheeseballs, or this recipe for pineapple cookies.  These are among some of my favorite ways to use fresh pineapple and to add a tropical twist to the menu.

Easy Grilled Pineapple

Cut several one inch thick quarters of fresh pineapple as suggested in the How to Cut a Fresh Pineapple link. Make a simple syrup with water and brown sugar.  Brush each quarter of  the pineapple with the simple brown sugar syrup. Grill the pineapple sections for four minutes on each side so that you have nice grill marks, but don’t overcook the pineapple. It can become mushy.
