Fresh Pineapple with Berry Sauce

Serves 4


Fresh berries make a marvelous sauce, but when they are puréed, as in this recipe, frozen can be substituted. This light, refreshing dessert is the perfect finale to a heavy meal or a barbecue.

Berry Sauce

  • 1 10-ounce package frozen raspberries, thawed, or 1 pint fresh
  • 1 10-ounce package frozen strawberries thawed, or 1 pint fresh
  • 1/2 cup sugar, or more to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons kirsch


  • 1/2 large pineapple
  • Fresh mint for garnish (optional)

To make the berry sauce:

  1. purée the berries along with their juice in a food mill, a food processor or a blender. If using a processor or blender, strain the sauce to remove the seeds.
  2. Stir the sugar and the kirsch into the purée.
  3. The sauce keeps well refrigerate, stored in a covered container, for 2 to 3 days. It can be frozen for up to 3 months

To prepare the pineapple:

  1. Cut the pineapple into very thin slices. Spoon some of the sauce onto each of 4 dessert plates. Overlap one-quarter of the pineapple slices on each plate. Garnish each with a sprig of fresh mint, if desired, and serve.
