Spiced Pineapple

A serving of this nicely seasoned pineapple is delicious alongside lamb chops or ham. It's an easy no-fuss side dish that adds a little something extra to make a meal stand out.—Chris Nash, Berthoud, Colorado

    Oh My Goodness these are delicious. They are similar to Spiced Peaches or Pears that I made and loved before. They are a wonderful side to Roast Pork, Pork Chops or Ham. I made them a few times and changed things up the second & third time around. Once, I just added 1 t. allspice and a few drops of red food coloring. Another time I added to the simmering liquid, a hand full of those tiny little cinnamon red hot candies. Also, I don't add the pineapple to the pan. I just boil & simmer the liquids as directed and then just pour over the pineapple. I serve these COLD.
