But, what if you didn't stop at dinner? What if you just kept on going right to the very end. What about soaking something in a bath of sugar and some of that booze you just can't seem to get rid of and tossing those onto the heat. Yes, that's it, I will grill my dessert! Finally, the answer! The coals will not burn in vain!
boozy grilled pineapple sundae
for the marinated pineapple:
- 1 fresh pineapple, cut into 1/4 inch thick slices and cored
- 1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
- 1/2 cup rum
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- pinch of salt
- vanilla ice cream
- unsweetened coconut flakes
- toasted pecan pieces
- boozy sauce
Place remaining pineapple marinade in small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until gooey and caramel-y. This should only take a few minutes. Remove from heat.
Assemble your sundaes. Ice cream, pineapple, gooey/boozy caramel sauce, coconut and toasted pecans. Enjoy!
**In the spirit of full disclosure I should probably mention that we realize grilled pineapple is not very cutting edge. However, we are totally cool with that. It was something we whipped up after dinner and it just so happened that is was really awesome. So, we thought we'd share. Also, remember all that good stuff I said about charcoal? Yeah, it's true; but you also remember that I am impatient, right? Well, I cooked it on the gas grill. Yeah, so what! I needed a paragraph about grilling that played to the emotions of summertime, and wasting charcoal was what I came up with. In all seriousness though, we have cooked this dish with both types of outdoor magic, and we prefer the Caveman method over Hank Hill's any day. So, there you have it.
