Caramelized Pineapple with Rum

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.
