I always love trying new food and within the past year, I got to try Brazillian BBQ. Aside from the tons of meats, I absolutely LOVED the grilled pineapple dessert. I remember sitting at the table, and the gaúchos coming around with a skewered whole pineapple with carmalized cinnamon sugar grilled rotisserie style. The other day I saw these tiny pineapples from South Africa and I decided to try and make my own version of the grilled pineapple. Since I don't have a grill, I had to improvise with my oven.

7.) My pineapple on my plate...I have to say, it smells SOO delicious. Fruity cinnamon buns, sort of.
8.) Slicing it like the gaúchos did, also "coring" the pineapple
9.) Another picture...look at how juicy it is!
