Commonly Asked Questions

Can I grill unripe pineapples?

It is not recommended. In fact, it is known that unripe pineapples can be toxic when consumed. Luckily, most commercially sold pineapples are already ripe – so there is no need to worry. If you are unsure, try asking your local farmer’s market seller for ripe pineapples, or buy them in fresh packets at the grocery.

Can I add more coating other than sugar and cinnamon?

Our grilled pineapple recipe comes perfectly in a sugar and cinnamon mix. But you can definitely add your own twist or other mixes to your liking. Try using honey in place of the sugar for a richer sweetness. You can even add a dash of hot sauce to add more zing to your grilled fruit. Feel free to experiment and add on more to your desire.


Brighten up your BBQ plates with our grilled pineapple recipe! Serve it fresh off the grill with your burgers and steaks.
