● 700 g pineapple, peeled and sliced in rings
● 500 g sugar
● 1 piece star anise
● 140 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
Peel the pineapple and slice in rings.
Put the pineapple rings in a large pot with the water, the sugar and the star anise and leave overnight.
In the morning, put on low heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
After the 30 minutes, increase the heat slightly and simmer for about 10 minutes until the syrup has reached the desired consistency.
Just before turning off the heat, add the lemon juice and stir for 2 minutes.
Allow the spoon sweet to rest for a bit and then store in glass sterilized jars.
