Why is grilled pineapple so good?

Pineapple is one of the best fruits for grilling because it is large and relatively uniform in shape, which makes it simple to cut into flat, grill-friendly slices, and because it is high in sugar, which causes it to caramelize beautifully over high heat, like that from a charcoal grill.

What happens to pineapple when you grill it?

If you’re not a fan of salted fruit, high heat also inactivates bromelain, so baking or grilling pineapple will prevent that tingling sensation (and tastes amazing in general).

Can you grill pineapple by itself?

Fresh, in-season pineapple is hard to topβ€”until you grill it, allowing the sugars to caramelize and intensify the fruit’s sweetness while also introducing a hint of smokiness.
