Grilled Pineapple

1 large ripe pineapple
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon freshly-squeezed lemon or lime juice
1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper

Trim, core, and peel pineapple. Cut into quarters from top to bottom. Slice out the core from each quarter. Cut each quarter slice into two pieces You should now have 8 long wedges of pineapple. You could also cut each of these in half to get 16 shorter servings

In a small bowl, combine honey, lemon or lime juice, and black pepper. Brush the glaze onto each slice of pineapple, coating completely.

Preheat barbecue grill. Either oil or spray the grill rack with non-stick cooking spray. Place pineapple wedges on the grill and cook approximately 4 minutes on each side (turning so that grill marks are on all sides) until the pineapple becomes fragrant and starts to dry out on the surface. NOTE: Don't overcook, or they'll turn mushy.

Remove from the grill and brush with any additional glaze one more time. Serve and enjoy!
