250 g pineapple chunks

3-4 tablespoons orange juice,

3-4 tablespoons honey

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


Cut the fruit into chunks of around the same size and thread them onto pre-soaked wooden skewers. Pour the orange juice, honey and cinnamon into a pan and heat until gently bubbling. Brush the orange juice/honey glaze over the fruit and grill for around  5-10 minutes or pop into a pre-heated oven(180°C, gas mark 4) until just starting to soften and going golden brown. Serve with any of the remaining glaze, a dusting of cinnamon/icing sugar and low-fat yogurt.

Variations are easy: you can add a tot of rum and a pinch of chilli and ginger for extra heat if serving to adults. Fruits such as mango and orange add extra colour and flavours to this simple but tasty dish.
