1/2 pineapple   1 kg
1 vanilla beans   2 g
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon   2 g

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful for this recipe.


  1. Peel the pineapple, remove the core and cut into thin slices (about 7 mm).
  2. Slit the vanilla bean lengthwise down the centre, scrape out some of the seeds and put them along with the scraped bean in a bowl. Add the cinnamon, sugar and rum, then mix well. Put the pineapple slices into the bowl to macerate for at least 2 h at room temperature or in the refrigerator overnight.
  3. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the drained pineapple slices and brown for a few minutes, until golden. Add the marinade (without the vanilla bean*) and cook about 10 min over low heat. Tranfer the pan contents to a blender and purée. Stir in the cream, mix well and portion out the mixture into individual cups or goblets.
  4. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 h before serving.


* The used vanilla bean may be rinsed, dried and stored for reuse.
