The Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons dark rum
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

The pineapple:

  • canola oil for brushing the grill
  • 1 4 pounds pineapple, skin removed, cut into 8 (3/4 inch) rounds, core removed
  • vanilla ice cream


The Sauce:

  • In a large skillet or medium saucepan set over medium heat, melt the butter. Whisk in the brown sugar and flour. Cook, whisking constantly, for about 2 minutes to eliminate the taste of the raw flour.
  • Pour in the half-and-half and cook, whisking constantly, until the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in rum, fresh lemon juice and vanilla extract. Keep the sauce warm over low heat until ready to use, whisking occasionally.

The Pineapple:

  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with canola oil. Lay the pineapple on the grill and cook, about 5 minutes, turning halfway through cooking.
  • Remove the pineapple from the heat, and serve with ice cream and the brown sugar rum sauce.
