To make the syrup combine all ingredients until well-blended and put aside.

Crystallized ginger:

Combine water and 1 ½ cups sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, add the ginger. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. With a spoon transfer the ginger to a wire rack and let dry and then roll the dried ginger slices in the extra sugar.

Arrange the pineapple slices on a serving plate and using a pastry brush, apply the syrup and then sprinkle with the crystallized ginger.
