2Remove the pan from heat and add brown sugar, cinnamon, star anise, cloves, vanilla seeds and pod, and about 1/2 of the rum. Place the pan in the oven and roast for 5 minutes. Turn over pineapple pieces and roast until pineapple is soft and caramelized, about 5 minutes more.
3Remove the pan from the oven, add remaining rum, and scrape to incorporate any of the browned bits into the liquid. Allow to cool, then remove pineapple and slice for serving. Remove spices and reserve remaining sauce for drizzling.
