I was quite elated when I brought home my yellow/golden wonder. It was packed in a plastic container (canister) looking firm and clearly ripened to perfection. From the looks of it, it was already releasing juice due to it being peeled and cored. It was ready; ready to be used up in whichever way I desired.
With cutting board and a sharpened knife, I went to work. First I removable core and set it aside. I smiled; had plans for same. I also grabbed my handy grill pan and allowed it to slowly heat up. My grand plan was to grill a few slices and serve with one of my favorite ice-cream flavors, butter pecan. Within a few minutes, I cut my golden boy into slices.
By then my grill was ready, so I placed three slices on same. It took approximately two to three minutes under low to medium heat to embed my grill marks.
I garnished my dessert plate with the core of the pineapple which I sliced in two halves. They reminded me of pillars. Between them, I placed a couple of the grilled pineapple slices along with a scoop of butter pecan ice-cream with a sprig of fresh mint.
Of course, I had more slices left on my board. So, I cut them in small pieces and placed them in standing blender. To that, I added minced root ginger along with fresh lime and orange juice and water. All the ingredients were blended and pureed to perfection.
