Setup. This is a kind of Indonesian fruit dessert that can be served hot or chilled. I don’t know its translation in English. It doesn’t pronounced like in English.
Today the weather in England is not very good since yesterday. It’s been raining and windy, very strong windy. So I decided to make setup nanas from pineapple. Pineapple in Indonesian called nanas. I got this recipe from an online friend of mine.
The ingredients to make this fruit dessert are so simple. It only needs: 3.5 cm of cinnamon stick, 3 cloves, sugar, and water, while for the fruit you can use banana or pineapple. In my opinion you can make a creation as well by changing the banana or pineapple with pears or apples.
I made this one last night though I didn’t have cinnamon stick and cloves. I used ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and mixed spice instead.
So here my own recipe:
1 fresh pineapple fruit
300 ml water
¼ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon mixed spice
How to make it:
Peel the pineapple, clean and wash it, then cut it into small pieces or whichever shape you would prefer.
Boil the water, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mixed spice in a saucepan. When it is boil then add the pineapples in.
Cook it for about half an hour in low heat and then serve it.
There is another method on how to cook and serve this setup nanas: after the water and other ingredient boiled then you can add the pineapples into the saucepan and cook it to reduce the water about half of it. Leave it about three hours to let the water soak up by then serve it.
It is very simple, isn’t it? 🙂
*Updated: A new visitor of my blog, Mrs. D, has suggested me the English name for this dessert: Poached Pineapple. Thanks very much, Mrs.D! 🙂
