A few weeks ago, I shared a recipe for grilled pork and apple skewers which made me the declared winner of a friendly summer grill-off competition.  Well – today’s recipe is the dessert that I served that same evening, and I am fairly certain these Grilled Bananas and Pineapple with Rum-Molasses Glaze are what really helped me clinch the title!

  1. How do I get my family invited to grill night at your place, lol. Most people don’t think of doing fruit on the grill but it truly comes alive when grilled. The natural sugars just pop out and make it so sweet it can stand on its own, but your glaze sounds like the perfect addition to it. Pineapple has to be one of our favorite things to grill in my home and if you haven’t tried it I second the call to add it to your next cook out.
