How to Make Air Fryer Grilled Pineapple-
If you are using fresh pineapple, you need to peel, core and slice them. It's fun to do that, however, if you find that tedious you can buy canned ones.
Preheat the air fryer. Top the pineapple slices with brown sugar and cinnamon powder. Make sure you are not using too much cinnamon powder since it can be really strong to use.
Once the air fryer is hot, place the pineapple pieces in one layer and cook them till they look caramelized and yummy. It took me around 12 -13 minutes and I turned them around after 6 minutes. You may take a little bit longer or shorter.
Tips for Doing it Perfectly-
Make sure your air fryer is preheated. Do not overcrowd the basket, as it's really important. If you are using fresh pineapple, make sure you are cutting them into the same size and thickness.
