So good! I like this over some of my other grilled pineapple recipes because of the easier prep. A lot to be said for not having to peel the pineapple! I used true maple syrup but left out the macadamia nuts because of family's preference.

I've made this twice so far - once with just pancake syrup and toasted almonds. It is very good!
