Grilled Pineapple with Brown Sugar Rum Sauce


The Sauce

  • 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3 tbsp dark rum
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

The pineapple

  • Canola oil, for brushing the grill
  • 1 (4 lb.) pineapple, skin removed, cut into 8 (3/4 inch) rounds, core removed
  • Vanilla ice cream


The sauce

  1. In a large skillet or medium saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the brown sugar and flour. Cook, whisking constantly, for about 2 minutes to eliminate the taste of the raw flour.
  2. Pour in the half-and-half and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in rum, fresh lemon juice and vanilla extract. Keep the sauce warm over low heat until ready to use, whisking occasionally.

The pineapple

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with canola oil. Lay the pineapple on the grill and cook, about 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
  2. Remove the pineapple from the heat, and serve with ice cream and the brown sugar rum sauce.
