Barbecued Pineapple with Ice Cream
As the weather has been brilliant recently it was time to get out and dust off the barbecue and cook a glorious meal which of course had to be followed but a delicious pudding. I decided to go with a family favourite grilled pineapple with ice cream. Hot sweet, sour and juicy pineapple and cold creamy ice cream. A delicious mix.
Usually I buy tinned pineapple to do this but I decided to use the OXO Good Grips Pineapple Slicer (£9 available at Amazon) I was sent to review. I love fresh pineapple but after cutting myself while trying to cut on a few years ago I’ve never been brave enough to try it again. This kitchen gadget worked so well and sliced and peeled in minutes.
You cut the pineapple head off to the line on the tool. You place it on top and start turning. Make sure you keep the pressure the same so you get the same thickness on all the rings. I had a few thin layers but it worked so well. I unraveled it and cut it up and took it to the barbecue. I can’t believe how well it worked.
For the ice cream I used the OXO Good Grips trigger ice cream scoop (£10 you can get it at Amazon). It is amazing the metal is thin so it cuts through the ice cream quickly and the trigger makes it it so easy to get the ice cream out. It’s already become the most used kitchen gadget in the last week thanks to the gorgeous hot weather. I would really recommend this ice cream scoop. It’s well made and should last a long time. Plus it was very easy to clean.
I placed the pineapple on the barbecue and flipped them after a few minutes. I tried to not move them so they would have the lovely grill lines on. Serve them straight away with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy.
