1 cinnamon stick

1 cup finely chopped onion
3⁄4 cup cider vinegar

In a large saucepan, combine the anise, cinnamon, garlic, ginger, chillies, onion, vinegar, sugar and currants. Bring to a simmer then reduce the liquid by half.

Place the pineapple in a mixing bowl and pour the hot pickling liquor over. Cover and refrigerate for at least 6 hours. Will keep for 1 month.
