To prepare the honey pineapple chutney: In a heavy, medium saucepan, heat oil over high heat. Add pineapple and onion and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium high and add honey, vinegar, orange peel, ginger and allspice; cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bell peppers and cook for 10 minutes more; let cool. Makes about 3 cups.

In a medium bowl, stir together ground beef, 1/2 cup honey pineapple chutney, jerk seasoning and pepper. Shape into 6 large flat patties. Grill over medium coals for 5 to 8 minutes per side. Serve on toasted buns topped with lettuce leaves and a spoonful of chutney.
