  • Reviews

  • “This is a very nice way to prepare pineapple, (my favorite fruit). I did this in the oven, added a T of brown sugar to the maple syrup to get a little thicker sauce. I then served it with scoops of french vanilla ice cream. Very good! Thanks for a great recipe!”

  • “Our family loved this!We’ve made it several times and look forward to making it again.We didn’t add the rum, but we still loved it.Thanks for the great recipe.”

  • “This pineapple was delicious! Served it with vanilla ice cream. They juice from the pineapple made a great tasting syrup on the ice cream. It taste great and I don’t think you really need the ice cream. My granddaughters really liked it too. Thanks Derf. Bullwinkle.Update review: I didn’t use the rum .”

  • “Loved this! Not too heavy or overly sweet. Pineapple is the star here, not the sauce, which is exactly what I was looking for. Very simple to prepare and a nice finish to a grilled meal. I omitted the rum but may use a bit of rum extract next time. Lovely with vanilla bean ice cream. Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Very easy and tasty dessert.I made it in the broiler.I did use the rum, and the sauce was yummy, although it was very thin.I’ll try to thicken it some next time.Thanks for sharing this one.”
