Method

  1. Gently heat the caster sugar, vanilla paste, lime juice and 50ml water in a pan until the sugar dissolves.

  2. Arrange the pineapple over a plate or platter. Drizzle over the syrup and set aside until ready to serve so the syrup can soak into the pineapple. Eat with vanilla or coconut ice cream, if you like.

This is a delicious way to eat pineapple. The vanilla paste works really well and the lime (just) stops it from being too sweet.
