Grilled pineapple

Serves 4-6

Grilled pineapple is a great way to finish off a barbecue, either served just as it is, with ice cream, or with a scattering of summer fruits such as strawberries or raspberries. I've used maple syrup, but you can also use clear honey if you prefer.

1 medium pineapple, top and bottom removed and cut into 1-2cm-thick slices
Balls of vanilla ice cream to serve
150-200g raspberries, or a mixture of raspberries and strawberries
5-6tbsp maple syrup

Grill the pineapple on the barbecue for about 4-5 minutes on each side, then transfer to a serving dish or individual plates with the ball of ice cream in the centre. Scatter over the berries and finish with the maple syrup.
