  • 1 medium fresh pineapple
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 14 g fresh mint, washed, leaves picked and chopped
  • 4 tsp Fairtrade sugar
  • 4 tbsp fromage frais


  1. 1

    Slice the top and bottom off the pineapple. Stand it upright on a chopping board and slice away all the skin and the little brown ‘eyes’.

  2. 2

    Quarter lengthways so you have 4 long wedges, then cut each in half. Slice away the woody cores from each wedge, then brush with the oil.

  3. 3

    Cook the pineapple wedges on a preheated barbecue, or in a hot griddle pan, for 10 minutes, turning halfway through.

  4. 4

    Meanwhile, using a pestle and mortar, pound the chopped mint leaves with the sugar.

  5. 5

    Serve the pineapple topped with a sprinkling of the minted sugar and a little pot or dollop of fromage frais on the side.
