Air Fryer Pineapple

• 1 fresh pineapple
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


1. Preheat the Air Fryer: Get your air fryer ready by setting it to 400°F (200°C) so it’s nice and hot when you’re ready to cook.
2. Prepare the Pineapple: Start by cutting off the top and bottom of the pineapple. Then peel off the skin by slicing around the pineapple. Cut the pineapple into long slices, leaving the core intact. Chop the slices into chunks and put them in a big bowl.
3. Make the Cinnamon Sugar Glaze: In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and brown sugar together. Stir until they’re mixed well. Add the cinnamon and keep whisking until it’s smooth and smells deliciously cinnamony.
4. Coat the Pineapple: Pour the cinnamon sugar glaze over the pineapple chunks in the bowl. Mix them up until each chunk is covered in the sweet cinnamon glaze.
5. Arrange in Air Fryer: Spread out the coated pineapple chunks in a single layer in the air fryer basket.


Recipe Notes:

  • Choosing the Right Pineapple: Look for a pineapple that’s firm with bright green leaves and a sweet aroma. The skin should be mostly golden yellow with minimal green patches.
  • Customize the Seasoning: Feel free to experiment with different seasonings to suit your taste. Ground ginger, nutmeg, or even a sprinkle of chili powder can add an interesting twist.
  • Storage: Air Fryer Pineapple is best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat gently in the air fryer or microwave before serving.
