  • 1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons honey

  1. Instructions
  2. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F and then line your baking sheet with parchment paper. If you don’t, you’ll have a nasty mess to clean up from the burnt sugar. Whisk the first three ingredients together in a medium bowl until the sugar is dissolved. Place the pineapple slices in a 8″ baking dish and pour the marinade over the slices, tossing to coat. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Place the pineapple slices, one flat side down on your baking sheet and save the marinade.
  3. Roast your pineapple for 15 minutes. Turn the slices and brush with your reserved marinade several times and roast until tender and caramelized, another 15 minutes. Remove from oven and drizzle the remaining marinade over and let slices cool.
  4. Divide pineapple slices among your plates. Spoon the creme fraiche, yogurt or even vanilla ice cream over the pineapple and garnish with the nuts and mint. Serves 4
