Fruit Dessert For Camping: Grilled Pineapple

I know that many people like to go camping because they enjoy roughing it. I'm not one of those people. I despise camping, but if I must rough it, I'm expecting some pretty delicious and comforting food. Grilled pineapple is sophisticated enough to make you feel like you're on a luxurious, relaxing vacation but simple enough to make in your campground. Accompanied by a sweet, honey syrup this pineapple is a wonderful, light finish to any meal. For the recipe,

To make this recipe a little more camping friendly, simply pre-cut the pineapple before you leave for camp.

Malarie: this would work great with canned pineapple rings. If you don't have access to a grill I would do it on the stove in a saucepan.

This sounds really yummie. Can you use canned pineapple instead? I can't peel pineapples to save my life. Also, I don't have a grill - can I use the oven instead??
