My father has been visiting from Canada and he introduced me to this fantastic barbecue dish. Something happens to pineapple when you barbecue it. It becomes even more heavenly – caramelised, sweet, chewy, perfection. Just try it! We brought it to a friend’s barbecue party and it went down an absolute hit!
This was where the barbecue was, in the middle of a field in an old planticrub. The grills themselves were set into the stone wall against the wee shed. The circular stone formation is the planticrub, a type of small walled garden/enclosure, originally designed as a nursery area for Shetland kale seedlings which gave them protection against the harsh winds. A perfect location for a barbecue party!
As this is such a great barbecue recipe I am sharing it with a new blogging challenge in 2013, Four Seasons Food, by Louisa from Chez Foti and Anneli at Delicieux. This month we’re tasked to share our barbecue dishes and I really do insist you must try this pineapple recipe as it’s so incredibly simple and effective.
Update: The fantastic Foodiequine in Aberdeen made this recipe for her One Week Barbecue Challenge and she changed the recipe slightly by adding some brandy and flambéing the pineapple!
