This roasted pineapple adds a nice clean finish to the end of a meal – especially refreshing in summer!
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Cut the pineapple in half lengthwise, then half each piece so you have quartered the pineapple lengthwise.
Add sugar, water, cinnamon, cloves, and star anise to a medium skillet with ovenproof handles. Bring to a boil over medium high heat. Boil until syrup starts to caramelize, about 5 to 8 minutes. The caramelized syrup is very hot. Carefully and slowly add the orange juice and pineapple so the syrup doesn’t splatter. Transfer to the oven and roast for 10 minutes, turning at the half waypoint. Let cool to room temperature before slicing.
Slice the pineapple thinly and arrange it on a platter in a decorative pattern. Drizzle lemon juice and sprinkle with mint.
