I recently made Smoked Pork Ribs with Pineapple Glaze. The original recipe called for a 20 oz can of sliced pineapple, when all I really needed was the juice. Well, when life gives you extra pineapple, caramelize it. This is a delicious treat served alone or over ice cream. I used canned pineapple slices, but it also works great with canned pineapple cubes or fresh pineapple.

Caramelized Pineapple with Rum

1 – 20 oz can Sliced Pineapple
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
3 Tbsp Dark Brown Sugar, packed
2 Tbsp Dark Rum

Combine butter, brown sugar and rum in a skillet over medium and cook until butter is melted, about 1 minute. Place pineapple in a single layer in the bottom of the skillet, spooning liquid over pineapple. Sauté the pineapple until it turns a golden brown color, turning once. Remove the pineapple from the pan and place on a serving dish. Using a heat-proof rubber spatula, scrape the remaining caramel from the bottom of the pan and onto the pineapple. If you want a little extra caramelization, place pineapple in a baking dish under the broiler for about 8 minutes or until the sugar starts to burn. Serve warm alone or over ice cream.
