In this easy recipe, pineapple bursts with flavor when grilled and the ginger cream adds a zippy finish.
cup fat-free sour cream
tablespoon packed brown sugar
tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger
medium pineapple (3 lb)
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, mix all ginger cream ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
Cut 1/2-inch slice off top and bottom of pineapple. Cut off rind. Cut pineapple crosswise into 6 slices; remove "eyes" from slices. Drizzle both sides of pineapple slices with butter.
Place pineapple slices on grill. Cover grill; cook over medium heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until hot and light brown. To serve, top pineapple with ginger cream; garnish with cherries.
Fruits offer a host of nutrients including vitamin C to accompany their great taste. Be sure to get at least 2 to 3 servings of fruit daily.
Purchasing pineapple have you in prickles? A ripe pineapple should have a sweet pineapple fragrance at the bottom of the fruit, and there should be no soft spots.
To each his own! Pass separate bowls of sour cream, brown sugar, ginger and cherries. Everybody gets as much of whatever they want, and it saves you the mixing step!
