Caramelized-Pineapple Syrup

  • TOTAL TIME: 15 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 8 ounces

Use leftover pineapple syrup to drizzle over ice cream or mix into a boozy shake spiked with rum or tequila.

Ingredients

  1. 1/2 cinnamon stick
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 4 ounces water
  4. 1/4 split vanilla bean
  5. 2 1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple
  1. In a small skillet, toast the cinnamon stick until fragrant. In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, vanilla bean and the toasted cinnamon. Cook without stirring until a light amber caramel forms, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and add the chopped fresh pineapple. Simmer over moderately low heat until the pineapple softens, about 8 minutes. Discard the cinnamon stick and vanilla bean. Let the pineapple mixture cool slightly, then carefully pour into a blender and puree until smooth. Strain the syrup into a jar and let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
