- 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks (1/2-inch pieces)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
- 2 tablespoons light rum
- Combine pineapple, sugar, water and zest in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until pineapple is tender and the liquid is slightly thickened, about 30 to 35 minutes. Stir in the rum, and cook for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and using an immersion blender or food processor puree the pineapple mixture. Allow sauce to chill completely.
