Ingredients and Method


  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. Riesling Blood Orange Grapeseed Oil
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp. chili powder, optional
  • 3 tbsp. Balsamic Glaze
  • Crushed Amaretti Cookies
  • Whipped cream or ice cream
  • Mint sprigs for garnish


  1. Peel the pineapple, removing any eyes from the fruit. Cut lengthwise into 6 wedges and remove the core.
  2. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, lime juice, salt and chili powder (if using). Brush the pineapple with half the mixture and use the remaining for basting once on the grill.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Grill the pineapple for 3-4 minutes on each side for slightly “al dente” pineapple, and 5-7 minutes on each side for melt in your mouth slices. Baste occasionally with remaining mixture.
  4. Serve with a drizzle of balsamic glaze, some crushed amaretti cookies, whipped cream or ice cream and mint sprigs.
