salad.queen's picture
  Pineapple 1 Small
  Ripe pears 2
  Bananas 2
  Lemon 1 , juiced
  Brazil nuts/Hazelnuts 1 Ounce (25 Gram)
For the caramel
  Castor sugar 3 Ounce (75 Gram)
  Water 3 Tablespoon

1. Prepare the pineapple by trimming off the top and bottom. Cut off the skin, removing all the tough pieces.
2. Cut the pineapple in slices and remove the core from each.
3. Cut the flesh into small segments. Place in an ovenproof glass dish.
4. Peel the pears and cut into dice.
5. Peel and slice the bananas.
6. Add these to the pineapple with the lemon juice; stir so the fruit is coated in lemon. This will help to prevent discolouration.
7. Chop the nuts coarsely and add.
8. To make the caramel, place the sugar and water in a saucepan.
9. Heat gently to dissolve the sugar without boiling.
10. When dissolved, bring to the boil and cook until a rich golden caramel.
11. Pour over the fruit immediately and serve within the hour, otherwise the crunchy caramel will dissolve.
