    Mikekey's Note:

    This uses fresh pineapple. Use the sauce for topping low-fat pound cake or angel food cake, or ice cream. From Cooking Light. Cook time does not include chilling time. As suggested by Wicked cook, adjust the amount of water according to how much syrup you want. As per I'm Pat's suggestion, use the de-seeded vanilla bean to make vanilla sugar. See her review for instructions.

      Although I did follow the list of ingredients, I took a detour when it came to preparing the pineapple! With a very sharp knife, I diced it quite small! Then, when the pineapple was cooked, I put half of the mixture in a bowl & took a hand-held potato masher to it so that the sauce ended up being a thicker, pineapple mush with some small chunks throughout! Our initial serving was over a slice of banana bread AND a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt! Absolutely wonderful! Thanks for sharing this great keeper of a recipe!

      Well this certainly deserves 10 stars!!!! This quick and easy sauce is delicious and can be used on cakes and ice cream. I served it on top of pound cake and my guests went crazy over it and asked for the recipe. I highly recommend this to won't be disappointed. Thanks for sharing it, Mikekey.

      I scaled this back for a 1/2 a pineaplle (6 serves) but well 3 off us demolished the lot over some vanilla icecream. My only criticism is DO NOT discard your deseeded vanilla bean - fill a jar with some sugar and jam it into the sugar and in a week or so you will have vanilla sugar (just dispose of the beans as they lose there smell or flavour, keep adding more beans and topping up the sugar and mixing well). Any way the DM, DS and I thoroughly enjoyed our dessert, thank you mikekey, made for Christmas Edition - Make My Recipe.
