Grilled pineapple with blackberry sauce & mint


Dessert on the barbecue? Yes, of course! The heat remaining on the grill can easily be used to rustle up a dessert.

A dessert with a difference

Fruits like pineapple, apricots and peaches taste delicious when grilled. The only thing to note with a charcoal grill is that it will give the fruit a slightly smoky taste too. Some people love it, others find it rather unusual. However, the healthy way to barbecue is suitable for all, and everyone should try it out at least once.

For grilled pineapple, you need

1 small pineapple, peeled
6-8 mint leaves
4 skewers, either wood or metal

Tip: Make sure to soak the wood for around 1 hour!

For the sauce

350g blackberries
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. rum or water
1 tsp. lemon juice

For the garnish

3 tbsp. Brazil nuts or pistachios

  1. Place the blackberries, sugar and liquids in a mixer and blend to a rough purée.
  2. Lightly toast the nuts and chop finely.
  3. Cut the pineapple into roughly 2cm slices and remove the central core.
  4. Now cut the slices into same-sized pieces and thread them onto the skewer so that the flat sides are all facing the same way.
  5. Thinly slice the mint leaves.
