  • 1 pineapple

  • Peel, core and dice the pineapples. Pulp in the food processor until it there are no clumps left.
  • Pour into a thick-bottomed pan, add water, sugar and vanilla extract. Heat over medium heat until it reaches a gentle boil. Cover and boil over low heat until all the liquid has evaporated (90 min - 2 hrs approx.).
