Grilled pineapples are one of our family’s favorite fruit to grill. Brush on some honey and orange juice and you are on your way to a delicious healthy treat.
When is a pineapple ripe? See this video from The Produce Guy to learn when your pineapple is perfectly ripe.
Cut the top and bottom off the pineapple with a good knife, preferably a serrated knife.
Stand the pineapple up and slice off the outer layer trying to remove most of the eyes.
Cut the pineapple into slices about a half inch thick. If you cut it too thin then your pineapple might break apart when cooking it on the grill.
You can use a cookie cutter to take out the core like I did or use a pineapple corer.
Mix together honey and orange juice in a small bowl. Baste the pineapple slices on both sides with the honey mixture using a basting brushing.
Preheat a gas or charcoal grill on medium. It is best to wipe some cooking oil with a cloth on the grates before grilling. Grill the slices of pineapple on the grill for approximately 2 – 4 minutes each side until done with nice grill marks.
Serve and enjoy!

Here is what it took for one whole pineapple:

Slice off both ends of the pineapple and the outer layer. Cut the pineapple into slices about 1/2″ thick. Core the pineapple with a cookie cutter or a pineapple corer.
