Christmas Pineapple

Category : Food

1 Del Monte Pineapple
250g Castor Sugar
200ml Passion Fruit Juice
200ml Banana Juice (Boiron Brand)
1 Cinnamon Stick
5g Star Anise
5g Black Pepper Corns
3 Cloves
½ Lime Juice
Pinch of Salt


Toast off all the spices until they begin to release a real Christmassy aroma, add the sugar and melt to a dark caramel. Next add the juices, bring to the boil and dissolve your caramel. Reduce your fruity caramel down to a toffee consistency.

When at required texture stop your reduction with Lime juice and a little salt.

Now allow your mix to infuse off the heat.

Once cool, pass your mixture through a fine sieve.  Pour onto your peeled and cored pineapple discs and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 180ºc.

Serve hot, with cream and a little off your cooking syrup.

Happy Cooking!
