slice the skin away from the top to bottom, removing any ‘eye’ as you go

carefully cut the pineapple lengthways, and then into thick wedges

remove the tough central core and discard

chop each wedge into bite sized chunks

once the pineapple is prepared, you may start threading roughly 7-8 chunks of pineapple onto each wooden skewer


To prepare the creamy caramel sauce

in a small solid based saucepan, on a medium heat, stir continuously Alexandrina Pure Jersey Cream, brown sugar, vanilla extract and salt, until the sugar bubbles start to rise.

take off the heat and cool, before transferring to a serving dish and small serving spoon
