    So easy to make. I served it not as a dessert but as a side along with recipe#178567#178567 and recipe#373129 We loved this. Made exactly as stated except I cut down the portion of the pineapple and halved the sauce. Had more rum sauce then pineapple but you can never have enough rum sauce MON. I might try this again using water and rum extract for a non-acholic version. But then I do like rum LOL Made for ZWT 5 Caribbean region for team Zaar Chow Hounds

    Review of rum sauce only: great recipe, I thought I had burned, trying to cook off some of the alcohol, but it's lovely. I added 2 tbsp whipped cream to make it creamier, as I want to serve over my Christmas pudding.

    ***This review is for the sauce only*** OMG....sooooo good. We had this over baked ham steaks, served with dippy eggs and cheddar filled crescent rolls (breakfast for dinner). I made the sauce as directed (used Whaler's Vanilla Rum, that's what I had on hand), cooked off alcohol a bit and added fresh chunked pineapple to it after cooking was completed. The possibilites for this sauce are endless. Ice cream, cheesecake, pancakes, waffles, ham....this was phenomenal. My husband & 4 year old daughter loved "dinner" tonight! Thanks for the post!

    Wonderful and simple and delicious. As I was enjoying this dessert with some frozen yogurt, it occurred to me that the pineapple would also make a nice relish to serve on top of broiled ham steaks.

    Made for ZWT4...Very, Very Yummy!!! I made this for a quick dessert tonight for hubby and I and it was wonderful. I will make this many times now that the price of fresh pineapples has gone down a little.
