Jamie Oliver's Pineapple With Bashed-Up Mint Sugar

Jamie Oliver's Pineapple With Bashed-Up Mint Sugar created by Rita1652

I first had this served to me a few years back when Jamie Oliver was just becoming known in the UK. I didn't think it would be good but I found it really tasty and very refreshing. Now I love serving it up to people that haven't tried it. It is best to serve this as soon as possible because it tastes its best when it is fresh and not sitting around.

ingredients

directions

  • Core the pineapple and cut it into quarters.
  • Thinly slice of bits of the quarters. Make your slices as thin as possible.
  • Arrange the slices on a plate in one or two layers. I tend to go for one.
  • Put the sugar into a mortar and pestle and then add the mint leaves.
  • Jamie then says to 'bash the heck out of it' until the color of the sugar changes to a greenish color. I find it smells really nice at this point.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over the top of the pineapple slices and serve.

    This is heavenly. I really enjoyed the flavors of the mint and the pineapple together, and it was super easy to make. Although this recipe includes sugar, it's still healthier than most desserts. I used Florida Crystals and about 3 sprigs of fresh mint from my garden. I don't have a mortar and pestle (yet), so I pulsed the sugar and mint together in my food processor. It's probably not as fragrant (or fun) that way, but the results were great! It went over really well at a vegan potluck. I can't wait to make it again for future events!

    This was alright. I would prefer fresh pineapple alone though. I used brown sugar crystals and fresh mint from the garden. I didn't like the fact that the sugar is unhealthy and the fresh pineapple was already sweet enough without. I didn't feel the mint went well with the pineapple until it sat a while and the flavour mellowed. Made for ZWT6 Britain. For my team, The Ya Ya Cookerhood.

    What fantastic flavours together!! This is my new favourite food! So simple, yet fresh. A true summer taste treat in the middle of winter.

    Delish, refreshingly yummy good! Made 1/4 of the recipe. A sprinkle of rum or tequila would have been a nice adult pickings.
