Lightly oil a large plate. Heat sugar with 2 Tbsp water in a small pot. Coarsely chop pine nuts, pistachios and cranberries. As soon as the sugar caramelizes, use wooden
spoon to stir the nuts and cranberries into the caramel. Spread the caramel onto the oiled plate and let it cool down.
Add cranberry nectar, rum, and cinnamon stick in a pot and bring to a boil. Stir the cornstarch with 1 Tbsp cold water and whisk briskly into nectar. Cook for 5 minutes
over low heat. Coarsely chop the cooled brittle.
Use a knife to peel off the pineapple's skin. Cut the pineapple flesh into six columns and remove the stalk. Cut the pineapple into finger-size pieces and thread them onto
8 wooden skewers. Lightly oil the grill pan and grill the pineapple skewers over high heat for 3 minutes on each side. Arrange each 2 skewers with some cranberry sauce and cranberry nut brittle. Garnish with lemon balm or fresh mint.
Tip: Serve the hot pineapple skewers with ice cream to make it a refreshing dessert. It goes well with vanilla, coconut, walnut or chocolate ice cream.
