Alright guys and gals, we are going to make some grilling magic today as part of our grilling series. Not only are we going to make some beautiful basil ice cream, but then we are going to plop that fancy glob of awesomeness down onto a pineapple. THAT’S NOT ALL! It isn’t just any pineapple. We are going to grill that pineapple and then glaze it with a super tasty honey sriracha sauce. Grilled pineapple with honey sriracha sauce and basil ice cream is what’s for dessert tonight.

Grilling Pineapple

Grilling pineapple gives the fruit some interesting tastes and textures. When coated with the honey sriracha glaze it provides a nice caramelized outside with a touch of smokiness from the grill. Fresh pineapple served cold is awesome and it is always fun to try something new, so get that grill going.

Honey Sriracha Sauce for The Grilled Pineapple

Oh boy, this is a treat. While it doesn’t really say it in the name, there is also butter in this. These three ingredients go together SO well. I am pretty sure I am going to start using this same sauce for my wings, but it is great for grilled pineapple.

Basil Ice Cream

I thought about just making a vanilla ice cream for this, but what fun is that? We have basil in the garden and it pairs well with pineapple, honey, and sriracha! So we have a triple winner here in this recipe. You are going to need an ice cream maker for this recipe, but if you know how to hand churn an ice cream, that would work, as well. I actually do this enough and it isn’t that hard, but needs some attention and time.

Overall, this has been a very fun and tasty recipe to develop. There is quite a bit going on with this recipe and each of the elements can be tasty on their own, but it is totally worthwhile to put this entire recipe together.
