  • About

Americans don’t customarily grill fruit, but elsewhere in the world—especially in Southeast Asia—bananas and other fruits are often charred over glowing coals for dessert. Pineapples taste particularly good grilled; the charred flavor meshes nicely with the caramelized sweetness of the fruit. When buying pineapple, go for the gold: Look for fruit with a golden rind. It will be juicier and sweeter than the usual green-rind pineapples.
