The 250 Best 4-Ingredient Recipes
Published by Robert Rose
Whether you barbecue, grill or oven-bake fruit, it is a marvelous finale for any dinner party. Try the Ginger Ricotta Cream for a sublime accompaniment to this pineapple recipe.
I suggest halved fresh or canned fruits, such as peaches, pears, apples or nectarines, pineapple spears, whole strawberries, green or red grapes or black cherries. Add a few slices of papaya or mangoes in season.
Rum makes a nice replacement for lemon juice.

In a medium bowl, combine butter, lemon juice and honey. Toss with pineapple to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.
Place pineapple in prepared baking dish. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until fruit is warmed and tender. (The time will differ greatly depending on the fruit you use.) Serve cooked pineapple on individual dessert plates topped with a spoonful of Ginger Ricotta Cream, if desired. Garnish with a mint sprig, if using.
