Summer: Grilled Pineapple

Our most recent trips to the Sunday farmers markets has had us returning home, laden with deliciously fresh Summer-fruits - juicy plums and nectarines, lychee's, melons, mangos, and my favourite, pineapple!
Sweet, juicy, with a little tang, I can't leave without a pineapple...or two!

So, after a couple of unseasonably cool days and some very ripe fruit, I searched the depths of the kitchen cupboards for the griddle pan, whacked it on the stove and grilled us a mid-morning treat.

It's very morish, and as easy as 1, 2, 3*!

1. I like to cut the pineapple into 2cm thick rounds, and then divide into 4 or 8 pieces.
2. Grill for a couple of minutes on each side until that lovely caramelising aroma begins to fill your kitchen...and cause your stomach to growl.
3. Arrange in your favourite bowl (or cup, like me), top with freshly squeezed lime juice/mint leaves/vanilla bean ice-cream/anything that takes your fancy!

*4. and ENJOY!

  1. Yum! I've been juicing pineapple with mint and ginger - a pre-dinner drink to help digestion. It's amazing!

    1. I don't know how I missed this comments for so long! Sorry, Jodi.
      We have been juicing like crazy this Summer - I love pineapple, mint and lime juice at brekky, but I'll definitely add try the ginger combo before dinner - thanks for the tip :)
