    Serves: 4 

    • 1 fresh pineapple
    • 4 tablespoons rum

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Peel the pineapple and, leaving it whole, cut out the centre core. Slice into 8 rings, and place them in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix together rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Pour over the pineapple, cover, chill for 1 hour, or overnight.
    2. Preheat barbecue for high heat.
    3. Cook pineapple rings on cooking grate over hot coals hot for 15 minutes, turning once, or until outside is dry and chargrilled. Serve with remaining marinade.


    If you're having a barbecue party, this is the perfect pudding to start the night before. Marinate the pineapple overnight, and then all that's left to do is barbecue! Serve with a variety of accompaniments, such as vanilla ice cream, Greek yoghurt or Madeira cake.

    I sprinkled the dry spices on the pineapple, drank the rum and called it a day. (wink wink)  -  15 Sep 2008


    Tasted yummy, but cook over a lower heat for longer, also don't add cloves, they overpower everything else!  -  18 May 2014


    Took shortcuts. gooo-oood! i didn't marinate it, just fried the spices up in a saucepan with tinned pineapple (omitting the rum and just using a little juice from the tin) and served it over a spinach salad. yummy. i will definitely make it again!  -  15 Sep 2008
