A quick, easy, and impressive dessert, that won’t hold you hostage in the kitchen. Pineapple is a storehouse of huge health benefits, due to its wealth of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Be sure to wash, using your favorite scrub brush, prior to slicing. A spoon, or apple corer works great to remove the center core from each ring.
1-(3 to 4 pound) pineapple
2 tsp butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup rum
1 pint light vanilla ice cream
Cut the top and bottom off the pineapple, peel and cut it crosswise into 8 rings, about 1/2 inch each. Carve out the center core of each ring.
Spray grill with cooking spray (avoid flame). Grill the pineapple over medium flame for 2-3 minutes on each side, until nicely brown, and grill marks have appeared.
Heat butter, sugar, and rum in a small saucepan over a low heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
Plate by placing pineapple, a scoop of ice cream (1/4 cup) into the center of pineapple ring, and drizzle about 2 teaspoons of rum sauce on top.
