  1. Preheat the oven 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Lay the pineapple on its side and slice off the top and the bottom. Stand the pineapple upright and trim off the rind. Try to get as much of the ‘eyes’ off as possible. Slice the pineapple in half, then into quarters. Lay a quarter on the cutting board and slice out the tough core. Repeat with all the quarters.
  3. Slice each wedge in half and place on the prepared baking sheet. Brush each wedge with half the melted butter or coconut oil and sprinkle evenly with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Roast for 15 minutes.
  4. Flip the pineapple wedges and brush with the remaining butter or oil and roast for another 15 minutes.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Chef Tips

Pineapple does not ripen with keeping, so if you can’t find a nice ripe one (recommended for this dish), keep the whole fruit in a warm place for a day or two — on top of the stove is good. It will activate the sugars and make the pineapple sweeter.

If you do not want to roast the whole pineapple, slice the quarter wedges into bite-size pieces and store in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator.
