Now that summer is just right around the corner, are you gearing up towards outdoor grillings? I enjoy those moments and I am anxiously looking forward to it. Yesterday’s evening will henceforth be regarded as pineapplelore in my house. Hubby was just quietly relaxing at the dinning table with a glass of fresh pineapple juice and the next moment, I was just parading some slices of honey grilled pineapples around him. ‘Pineapplelore’, I exclaimed! Then it was clear to him that it was going to be a pineapple evening and yes it was… Cos not only did we had some freshly juiced pineapple drink, but also some grilled pineapples fresh from the grill. Grabbing the plate from me, we started doing justice to the pineapples! Halfway through the pineapples, I realized that I should have divided the pineapples into two and prepare one part with only honey and the second part grilled with mixed spices. But notwithstanding, the honey version was just spot on and I bet you too can never go wrong with it as well.

I love grilling and I love grilled pineapples! You can’t over-enjoy how grilling transforms your fruits especially when you are dealing with sour fruits. Some pineapples look ripen on the outer part but once you slit them up to eat, you’ll realize how sour they are.  But thanks to the power of grill and honey as they tend to transform these once “sour pineapples” to a super tasteful and flavorful ones. I enjoy grilling pineapples because it is very easy to prepare and yet so yummililicious that it can take you to the next planet. This graceful and flavorsome dessert is so refreshing and soothing to the nerves….. Just a perfect dessert for either breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The honey, salt, lemon juice and dry parsley herb brings out the flavor and taste in this pineapple. BTW, apart from grilling, pineapples can be eaten fresh, juiced or used for cooking food. Different countries have different cuisines for pineapples and each one has its distinctive taste and aroma. Pineapples are an excellent source of Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B-6, Magnesium, Calcium and Iron. Some countries prepare pineapples as snacks, which they sell on the roadside while some other ones halve them and knit them in skewers. Chopped pineapples are also used to garnish salads, desserts, yogurt and pizza etc.

Go get yourself some fresh pineapples and give this recipe a try!
