Pineapple Berry Hobo Pack


Hobo packets, also known as foil packet recipes, are ideal for cooking on the grill. Caramelized pineapple desserts only get better when combined with pound cake and berries.

Total Time:
20 mins


  • 2 cup coarsely chopped, cored fresh pineapple (peeled, if desired)

  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon chopped crystallized ginger

  • 1 cup raspberries and/or blueberries

  • 1 teaspoon Demerara sugar or brown sugar


  1. Fold a 36x18-inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18-inch square. Place pineapple in center of foil. Sprinkle with brown sugar and crystallized ginger. Bring up 2 opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges to completely enclose vegetables, leaving space for steam to build.

  2. For a charcoal grill, place packet on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals about 10 minutes or until hot, turning occasionally. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place packet on a grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)

  3. Carefully open packet and transfer fruit mixture to serving bowl. Add berries. Sprinkle with demerara sugar. Makes 4 servings.
