Pineapple skewers with vanilla and lime syrup HERO

Round off your barbecue in style with this gorgeous pud.

Remove the leafy crown and slice the pineapple in half. Cut off the skin and eyes and cut into 8 wedges. Cut off the woody core, then push the wedges onto 8 soaked wooden skewers and set aside until needed.

For the syrup, put the brown sugar, water, vanilla, lime zest and a squeeze of juice into a small saucepan. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved and the vanilla seeds have dispersed. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until syrupy. Stir in rum, if using. Set aside until ready to serve.

When you’re ready to barbecue, sprinkle the pineapple wedges with caster sugar and barbecue for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until slightly charred. Serve with the syrup and some ice cream, if you like.
