I love summer because of all the delicious seasonal fruits. There’s nothing like the sweet juicy taste of fresh pineapple. (See tips for selecting fruit.) One way to bring out the sweetness while still preserving the amazing pineapple flavor? Roasting the pineapple. You can eat it plain, on pizza, over ice cream, with ham . . . oh the possibilities!
1 fresh ripe pineapple, trimmed, cored, and sliced
2 T butter or margarine
1/2 c brown sugar
Cover baking sheet with foil and lightly grease foil with butter. Melt butter or margarine. Stir in brown sugar. Dip pineapple slices in butter/sugar mixture and place on foil. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes. Remove baking sheet. Turn oven to broil and raise oven rack. Return baking sheet to oven and broil pineapple 2-4 minutes or until edges start to brown, watching carefully. Serve plain, on pizza, over ice cream, or with ham.
