Barbecued Pineapple

1 fresh pineapple

1/4 cup rum

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves


Peel the pineapple and, leaving it whole, cut out the center core.

Slice into 8 rings, and place them in a shallow glass dish or resealable plastic bag.

In a small bowl, mix together the rum, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

Pour marinade over the pineapple, cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, or overnight.

Preheat grill for high heat. Lightly oil grate.

Grill pineapple rings 15 minutes, turning once, or until outside is dry and char marked.

Serve with remaining marinade.
