What's on the Grill #28

Tonight's dinner was pineapple themed. For the main course, it was drunken salmon and grilled pineapple. For desert, there is nothing better than grilled fruit. By continuing the pineapple theme, I whipped up grilled pineapple topped with fresh blueberries, creme fraiche and a butter rum sauce. It is incredibly easy and incredibly good.

Creme fraiche is somewhere between sour cream and heavy whipping cream. Around here, we can pick it up at Dorthy Lane Market. I have yet to see it at Kroger or Meijer. For the butter rum sauce, I mix together 1/4 cup of butter, 2 tablespoons of rum and around a half teaspoon of cinnamon. I heat it up on the grill next to whatever I am grilling while being careful not to slosh to much over open flame....or BOOM. Try it sometime...the sauce, not the boom.
