This had a lovely fresh taste, and the juices from the pineapple, along with the lime, tequila and sugar, made a delicious syrup. I made it exactly as instructed. I used superfine sugar as I felt it would dissolve easier. The dish I used was 11" by 7". Next time I'd choose a smaller dish, to better retain the juices while cooking. We enjoyed it with icecream. The only down-side to this recipe is the cost. Fortunately, I had some tequila already, but the pineapple wasn't cheap either. Then again, it is out of season in Oz. Next time I'll make it in spring/summer.
