Sizzling Pineapple With Crunchy Mint Sugar

If you've got a sweet tooth then this recipe is ideal. The sweet pineapple is perfectly complemented by the crunchy mint sugar to make a tantalising snack you won't be able to resist.


  • 1 ripe pineapple
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 8-10g fresh mint leaves (chopped)
  • 4tsp castor sugar
  • Greek yogurt to serve (optional)

What you'll need

  • Knife
  • Chopping board
  • Pestle and mortar
  • Cast iron griddle pan
  • Oven gloves


Take your lovely fresh pineapple, slice the top and bottom off and continue to chop the rest of the skin off.

Quarter the fruit lengthways, chop the woody core off each wedge and then slice each quarter in half, so you're left with 8 long pieces. Brush with the oil and place on a cast iron griddle pan.

Once your campfire is nice and hot, carefully brush out some hot embers and place the griddle pan on the embers. Allow the pineapple wedges to cook away for 10 minutes or so, turning halfway through.

While you're keeping a watchful eye on the pineapple, get a friend to grind the mint leaves and sugar together in a pestle and mortar. Don't put too much mint in at first, as it makes it quite hard to grind. Start with a little and then add more leaves for a more minty flavour.

Once the pineapple has been nicely seared on all sides, sprinkle some mint sugar on your slices and add a dollop of Greek yogurt (if you fancy). Bon appétit!
