After I wrote this recipe I asked my husband to test it. He was so excited when the liquor flamed that he threw the match right into the pineapple. We had a great laugh and realized how much fun this recipe would be to make with friends.

Active time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes

  • 1 large pineapple
  • 4 ounce unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • ¼ cup Grand Marnier
  • 3 tablespoon Tequila
  • 1 pint black berries

Using a sharp knife, cut the top and bottom off the pineapple, stand it up and starting at the top carefully slice of the peel. Cut the pineapple in half and then in quarters. Cutting lengthwise slice out the small core of each pineapple quarter. Lay each on its side and slice into ¼ inch pieces; transfer to a clean bowl.

In a large sauce pan over medium heat melt the butter, stir in the sugar and orange juice; increase the heat to high. When almost to a boil add the pineapple slices and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring gently to baste the fruit. Add the Grand Marnier and Tequila to one side of pan and if you have a gas stove gently tip the pan, away from you, towards the flame to ignite the liquor, otherwise use a long match. Do not pour the liquor directly from the bottle as it could ignite the pouring liquor and the bottle could explode. The flame will reduce as the alcohol burns off.

Using a slotted spoon transfer the pineapple slices to a large serving platter. Add the berries to the hot juice and let simmer 1 minute. Pour the berries and juice over the pineapple. Serve with special cookies or ice cream.

Yield: 6 servings
