Grilled Pineapple with Maple Cream

If it seems like a lot of trouble to trim a fresh pineapple for this dessert, try to find already cored and sliced fresh pineapple in the supermarket.

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
6 tablespoons maple sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon cardamom
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
4 cups fresh pineapple chunks

1 In a small bowl, stir together the sour cream and 2 tablespoons of the maple sugar. Refrigerate until serving time.
2 In a large bowl, stir together the remaining 4 tablespoons maple sugar, the ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves. Add the pineapple to the bowl and toss well to coat.
3 Preheat the broiler. Spray the broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Lift the pineapple from any juices that have accumulated in the bowl and thread the chunks onto 8 skewers.
4 Broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 6 minutes, turning the skewers over midway and brushing the pineapple with any juices in the bowl, until the pineapple has caramelized. Serve with the maple cream. Makes 4 servings
