Pineapple used to be exotic and expensive, but now it's more common and cheaper. Either way, it's one of my favorite fruits. This recipe was developed by Mark Bittman (the Minimalist) and was published in the New York Times.
This is the sauce from my Reggae Wraps recipe. After several people asked me to post it separately I gave in. This sauce is great on just about anything but shoe leather! WONDERFUL on ASIAN cuisine, INDIAN dishes, just about anything that is grilled or spicy! Try this on tacos, burritos, grilled meats, seafood or veggies. Hope you enjoy it.
With both butter and Scotch, this sauce is the real thing! It's infinitely better than the kind you buy in a jar, and it takes only about 10 minutes to make. Serve it over ice cream or over grilled pineapple slices or with both together, or as a dessert waffle topping, along with sliced bananas and chopped walnuts.

This is lovely syrup used to brighten up the flavors of a simple fruit salad. The recipe comes to me from the Santa Fe Cooking School and works especially well as a light dessert after a Southwestern meal. The flavors are reminiscent of the popular mojito. I like it best with more tropical fruits like pineapple, mango and banana but find it works very well with summer fruits such as strawberries and grapes. One batch of syrup is plenty for 4-6 cups of fruit. You can prepare this days ahead of time and mix with the salad just before serving.
