#CookoutWeek 2018 is here! During the next week, I am joining over 50 blogger friends to celebrate summer by posting delicious cookout-themed recipes, including my recipe today for cinnamon brown sugar grilled pineapple parfait. If you love grilling, frozen treats, picnics, berries, s’mores, campfire meals, and other summer goodies… you are in the right place!

I received products from Chef Shamy to create this recipe for #CookoutWeek. All opinions are my own.
I’m starting off the week with a dessert. Pineapple is one of my family’s favorite fruits. Sometimes, though, it can be a bit tart, as can many fruits. I’ve always heard of grilling pineapple but have never done it before. When given the choices of butter for Chef Shamy I instantly knew I wanted to use the Honey Butter Cinnamon and Brown Sugar on pineapple to make a cinnamon brown sugar grilled pineapple parfait.
If I say so myself, it was a good choice. The sweetness of the butter balanced the tartness of the pineapple. While the grilled pineapple is delicious on it’s own, topping a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream makes a light summertime dessert that is the perfect way to end a cookout.
Some living arrangements don’t allow for an outdoor gas or charcoal grill and for that reason, I made these on my cast iron grill pan. It worked well and I achieved the desired grill marks.

A little bit about Chef Shamy. Their slogan is Make the World a Butter Place®. Personally, I love butter and there are so many good things about Chef Shamy. Their butter contains no oils plus the savory butters can be used in keto recipes if you follow that lifestyle. The product also has an amazing shelf life. It’s good up to 2 years frozen (can be refrozen and re-refrigerated), good up to 1 year unopened in your fridge or 6 months after opening in your fridge if you use clean utensils. If you prefer to have it softened and ready to use it’s good up to several weeks after opening on your counter. The time it will remain usable on your counter depends on ambient temperature, cleanliness of utensils, type of butter (garlic does the best as it contains the bacterial inhibitors including salt, pepper and garlic, which has been acidified with vinegar).
The long and short of it is, if you are going to use it up it is easier to use at room temperature. If you are going to have it around for 6 months, definitely refrigerate between uses. That will give you a longer shelf life and a fresher taste. But the quality and flavor (like any butter) degrades over time once opened. Learn more about Chef Shamy through this link.
