Yields 6 (6 servings × 1)

Pineapple is one of those foods that are heaven to eat. A juicy, ripe pineapple can satisfy a sweet craving as well as any chocolate bar. In addition to being a delicious food, there are many health benefits of pineapple.


2 tsp vanilla extract

8 12 inch wooden skewers

3/4 cup tequila

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 whole large pineapple


Preheat Grill to medium-high. (400)

Cut the bottom of the pineapple off to give it a flat surface for cutting. Stand pineapple upright on its flat surface and cut down the side removing as much of the coarse outer skin. Lay pineapple on its side and cut into eighths lengthwise so that you are cutting through the hard inner core.

In a large bowl marinate the pineapple in tequila mixture for 10-15 minutes. Remove from marinade and serve. Push a skewer through the end of each pineapple piece so that it goes through the core.
