Caramelized Pineapple

Pineapple Caramel

Here's how to make it: 

  1. For the caramelized pineapple, in a large sauté pan melt the butter. Add the chopped pineapple to pan and stir gently to coat. Let the pineapple sauté for about 3 minutes, then sprinkle the brown sugar over the top. Stir gently to coat. Let the pineapple simmer on a low heat for about 10 minutes, or until the pineapple starts to brown and the butter and sugar start to caramelize. Sprinkle a pinch of kosher salt over the pineapple. Gently stir. Remove from the heat and spoon caramelized pineapple over pancakes.
  2. For the pineapple caramel, in a saucepan (no heat yet!) combine the sugar and the pineapple puree. Stir until dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Every couple of minutes stir with a rubber spatula, making sure to clean the sides of the pot. This is to ensure all of the crystals of sugar dissolve. After 20 to 25 minutes the mixture should begin to turn a golden brown color, deeper than the yellow color you started with. Once the mixture is golden brown remove it from the heat and melt in the butter. Stir in the heavy cream and salt. Continue stirring until smooth.
