Place the sugar and water in a pan and heat until the sugar has dissolved

Pour the sugar syrup into the bowl with the spices and allow it to cool before putting in the fridge to infuse for around 6 hours. After this time, strain the infusion through a fine sieve

Cut away the top and bottom of the pineapple and remove the skin. Cut into quarters and remove the core

Dip the moulds in hot water for a few seconds and then pull the jelly away from the sides gently. Invert the moulds and gently shake out the jellies onto individual soup plates
