Pineapple Sauce

Karry Hosford
Commercial fruit sauces tend to be thick and gloppy, tasting only faintly of the namesake fruit. This simple sauce puts the flavor of fresh pineapple in the forefront - and because it requires no cooking, it can be ready in a flash. Adapt this basic ice cream topper by adding spices, herbs, citrus juice, or rind.


1 3/4 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
