*Caramelized Pineapple Syrup INGREDIENTS:
PROCEDURE: Melt the butter in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Add the pineapple slices and cook, turning occasionally, until darkly caramelized (10 to 15 minutes). Deglaze the pan with the rum. Add the sugar and stir vigorously until it melts into a bubbling mass. Slowly add the pineapple juice and stir to incorporate. Remove from the heat and let cool. Strain, puree the fruit and stir back into the liquid.
