Directions

  1. Mix fruit juice, sugar, lime juice and spices in a large bowl until sugar dissolves. Toss pineapple in spice sauce to coat and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 min. or until ready to grill.

  2. Preheat grill to high. Divide pineapple pieces among four metal or soaked wooden skewers. Set aside. Transfer marinade to a small saucepan and heat on medium. Dissolve cornstarch in 1 tsp (5 mL) cold water and whisk into simmering marinade. Cook, stirring, for approx. 1 min. or until thickened.

  3. Grill pineapple skewers 1 to 2 min. per side, until golden brown. Serve with sauce and sprigs of fresh mint.
