Candied ginger imparts a ton of fabulous flavour to yogourt. It’s a wonderful topping for almost any type of broiled or baked fruit.


Plain fat free Greek yogurt

¼ cup(s), (60 ml)

Crystallized ginger

1½ tbsp(s), (22 ml) minced (candied ginger)


1 medium, peeled, cored, cut into 12 rounds

Unpacked light brown sugar

1½ tbsp(s), (22 ml)

Ground allspice

½ tsp(s), (2 ml)

Mint leaves

4 piece(s), large sprigs (optional)


  1. Set oven rack about 12.5 cm (5 inches) from broiler. Preheat broiler.
  2. Place yogourt in a small bowl and stir in ginger; set aside.
  3. Place 3 slices pineapple in each of 4 small (25-cm [10-inch]) oval gratin dishes, overlapping them slightly; sprinkle with sugar and allspice. Broil pineapple until bubbling and lightly caramelized, about 8 minutes (but check once or twice to make sure pineapple isn’t getting too dark).
  4. Remove pineapple from oven; top each dish with 15 ml (1 Tbsp) topping. Garnish with mint; serve warm.
  5. Serving size: 3 slices pineapple with 1 Tbsp topping


Choose candied ginger that’s soft so it’ll be easy to chop.
