Pineapple is a delicious, sweet fruit packed with vitamins. It’s great year-round – in the winter months, it gives a much needed Vitamin C boost, while it is nice and refreshing in the heat of summer. It was a no-brainer to plank it, and I must say, it is one of our all-time favorite planking recipes. There is something magical about the combination of sweet, sour and smoky.
