Bruised Rosemary Pineapple

Another combination from Aki and Alex's book Ideas In Food. This is a whole pineapple cut into planks, lightly seasoned with salt, brown sugar and cayenne, packed and vacuum sealed with lots of rosemary.

I gently froze it overnight because I don't have a vacuum sealer. This apparently gives a close approximation.

Results? Flavors were more subtle than expected, but noticeably unique. Tasty on it's own, it was best combined with other things we had around - such as a piece of grilled shrimp or a bite of spicy steak. We used quite a bit of it the first night as an important garnish and flavoring for Grey Goose vodka.

With some leftover, the flavor intensified brilliantly over the next few days.
