Caramelised pineapple with Sichuan pepper and vanilla yoghurt


"I like this warm pineapple dessert served with vanilla yoghurt," says Greeno, "but you could use crème fraîche or ice-cream instead. It just has to be something cold and refreshing."

You'll need

175 gm caster sugar 1 small pineapple 1 tbsp Sichuan peppercorns 1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped 200 gm thick Greek-style yoghurt

Method

  • 01
  • Scatter sugar in the base of a large frying pan and cook over medium-high heat, shaking pan occasionally, until sugar is dark and caramelised (4-5 minutes). Add 100ml water (be careful, hot caramel will spit), swirl pan to combine, then add peppercorns and vanilla bean (reserve seeds).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, quarter pineapple lengthways through the core, remove core and discard. Add pineapple to caramel and cook, turning occasionally, until glazed and tender (4-5 minutes).
  • 03
  • Stir yoghurt and vanilla seeds in a bowl to combine and serve with pineapple and spiced caramel.
