The tropical fruit pineapple belongs on the grill this summer. Unlike many other fruits, pineapples have a delicious flavor when grilled or baked. It can withstand the heat and has enough flesh and texture to not turn into mush when being grilled. Other fruits such as strawberries, apples, oranges, etc cannot withstand the grill. The flavor in some cases is lost completely and the fruit is no longer appetizing for most people. The rich taste of ravishing juice coming from the pineapples as a side with grilled chicken or a well cooked steak is very overlooked. Another idea is using grilled pineapples as a substitute for hamburger buns if one is looking for an exotic meal to try out in the nice weather. To make meals even more simple and fun, the grilled pineapples can be used making an old school sundae. The sweetest flavor is given especially topped with caramel or strawberry filling.
