LAMB WITH PINEAPPLE LAMB SAUCE Ingredients * 2 whole racks of lamb (8 chops each), about 2 pounds, frenched * Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper * 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided * 1 fresh pineapple, peeled and cored * 2 garlic cloves, minced * 1 small bunch fresh mint, tied with kitchen string, plus 1/4 cup leaves, finely chopped * 1/2 cup water Directions Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Trim any excess fat on the lamb racks and season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat and put the racks in the hot pan, fat side up. Sear until browned, then flip and sear on the fat side until golden brown. Stand the racks up in the pan, criss-crossing the bones with the fatty side out. Put the pan in the oven to roast until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let the lamb rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes. Slice into single or double chops (2 rib bones). To make the sauce, finely chop the pineapple, reserving any juices that are released (it should resemble canned crushed pineapple). Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the pineapple and its juice, the mint bundle and water to the saucepan and simmer over low heat until the pineapple is broken down and the liquid has thickened, about 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the mint bundle and discard; stir the chopped mint into the sauce and transfer to a serving bowl. Serve the lamb chops on a platter topped with the pineapple mint sauce spooned over the top.

I loved eating this as a kid my mom used to make it all the time with fresh pineapple when it was in season.It can be made with canned pineapples when not in season. all you need is 1)one freshly cut pineapple into small cubes 2)2-3 cloves and 1cinnamon stick 4) butter 2 tablespoon of melted butter 5)sugar 3-4 tablespoon sugar. In a pan add the butter when hot don't let the butter get too hot it might just burn , add the cloves cinnamon saute for about one minute then add the pineapple pieces , sugar and some little water, if canned is being used used some of the syrup and lessen the quantity of sugar by 1 tablespoon. after the water is added cover with the lid and let it cook for about 5-7 minutes. when done let it cool put it in the fridge and serve it with some whipped cream or it can be eaten the way it is , I personally like it more with whipped cream.

This one is great with bbq season starting. All you need are enough whole bananas for everyone, some chocolate of choice, some pinapple chunks and foil. Slit each banana along the long side, stuff with each person's favorite chocolate and pinapple chunks and wrap each in foil. Place on grill or directly into coals and bake about 15-20 minutes. Check for doneness- if skin is black they are ready. The banana and pineapple will have softened and the chocolate will be melted and it combines to make a 'healthy' treat.

Grill fresh pineapple slices on the BBQ. Roast corn kernals in the oven. Mix the two together with golden raisins. Drizzle with a very good, sweet balsamic vinegar. I call it the Charlie Brown. The squiggles of balsamic on the yellow corn, pineapple and raisins reminds me of Charlie Browns shirt. Its one of my favorite healthy summer snacks and combines all of my favorite foods!

Pineapple really hides the taste of the vegetables in my smoothies. I put this in a powerful Vitamix blender to keep all the nutrients and fibers. Green Smoothie 2 or 3 large leaves of Swiss Chard or kale 1 carrot (with green tops if desired) half a pineapple or to taste frozen blueberries or any other berries flax seeds (optional) water to desired consistency Sweeten with stevia or other natural sweeteners if desired but I find the pineapple does the trick. Blend until smooth. Drink within the day for optimum nutrition.

Pineapple and Steak Sandwich Seasoning Mix: mix 2 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp pepper, and 4 tsp cumin 1 beef fillet, sliced into 1/2 inch slices 6 slices of fresh pineapple, about 1/2 inches thick Chevre Favorite bread, sliced (I like French) Olive oil (flavored olive oils are also nice for this) Sprinkle beef liberally with kosher salt, ground pepper, and cumin Seasoning Mix. Set aside. Brush olive oil on each side of bread slices set on an oven sheet. Bake, turning once, until each side is golden brown. While bread is toasting, pan sear the beef on high heat with 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil until desired doneness (best in a cast iron skillet, and I prefer medium/medium rare, usually takes a minute or less per side). Set beef aside on a plate to rest. Pan sear pineapple slices on high heat until hot and sugars slightly caramelized on outside. Sprinkle with extra seasoning mix if desired. Assemble sandwich by spreading chevre generously on the toasted bread slices, then stacking on beef and pineapple slices to fill out the sandwich. The number of sandwiches this makes depends on how big your bread slices are and how fat you like your sandwiches.

I've got a simple yet unexpected recipe. Simply put...pineapple and chili sauce. I prefer Sambal Oelek ground fresh chili paste. It is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. Delicious.

Chocolate Pineapple Dessert Once you have cut the outter skin off your pineapple, core it, and cut it into round slices. Sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar on both sides of pineapple. Place pineapple rounds on a hot grill and cook long enough to have slight grill marks. This will only take a few minutes. Turn them over so both sides have marks. In a bowl, take chocolate (I like approx. 70% cocoa) and melt it in a double boiler. Add about a tsp of orange liquor and a tsp of vanilla and a tsp of cinnamon. Stir it all together. Either dip the pineapple circles in and let them cool or use the chocolate as a fondue dish and enjoy!
