If you’re not grilling pineapple on a regular basis then you’re missing out on a very good thing. There are lots of ways to dress it up (we like it with mint and blueberries and ice cream) but you’ve got to start with the simple preparation of the fruit. This is how we (usually) do it:
Cut off the top
Cut off the bottom.
Shave off the sides. Try to get as many of the little round nubbins (industry term) as possible.
Run the knife down the middle once to halve the pineapple and then run the knife down the middle a second time to quarter it.
Slice off the woody, not so tasty, inner edges of the pineapple.
Ta-da. Pineapple, ready for grilling.
