I sprinkled the dry spices on the pineapple, drank the rum, and called it a day. (wink wink) Read More

Not as good as I had hoped. Although the pineapple was sweet and I followed the recipe exactly it was disappointing. It is similar to Bananas Foster but not as good. Read More

Easy and everyone was impressed. I used orange juice instead of rum and 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice instead of the others because it was all I had. Delicious. Read More

Oooh good! I'll be making this again. I marinated the pineapple in a ziplock bag in the fridge and "grilled" it in the oven. Delicious and good with ice cream. Read More

Made this twice now. Oddly enough the pineapple that looked the most burnt tasted the best! The first time I actually dropped the cloves for more cinnamon and used dark rum but only because I didn't have any cloves and the first bottle of rum I found was Meyer's.:) It was requested of me again so second round same rum doubled EVERYTHING because I was using a plastic container and I wanted to have plenty to let it sit in. I even poured what didn't soak into the pineapple onto it while it was on the grill. Oh Man! Next time I will double again except for the cloves...they were too strong. Still awesome though!

Delicious!!! I left out the rum - as I was serving it to my children. Instead I substituted some fruit punch and only used brown sugar and cinnamon. Fantastic! Super seet and super juicy! Read More

This was excellent. All I had in the pantry was Myers Original Dark rum so I used that and boy howdy was this ever good. The rum was not to strong after cooking and it had a nice carmelized glaze to it. I served this with grilled pork chops and strawberry spinach salad from this site and it was a hit. I will make this again and again. Read More

I omitted the rum because I didn't have any and grilled it on my George Foreman grill at 400F. (my grill has temp control) I served it with a big scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. Yum! Read More
