The last pineapple I picked wasn’t as ripe as I expected, so the rings ended up on the grill pan to caramelize, enhancing their flavor. I made grilled pineapple salsa, a tropical twist on a favorite chip dip.
Trying to avoid nightshades? Looking for a tropical spread? Try this savory/sweet ketchup, perfect on banh mi sandwiches, over cream cheese and crackers for a quick appetizer or as a marinade for tofu, chicken or pork.
This recipe recalls the very first preserves I ever made: pineapple lime jam. The rumor is that the result was so exquisite that my father-in-law ate it straight out of the jar. I’m sorry that it’s taken me nearly 6 years to revisit the combination.
