Vanilla-Rum Party Pineapple

This is a great centerpiece and a welcome fresh taste on a buffet table. The rum-accented glaze adds to the holiday flavor.

1/4 cup honey
1 bottle (1 oz.) pure vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon rum extract
8 cups assorted fruit pieces; select your favorites from:
    honeydew melon
    star fruit
1 whole fresh pineapple

In a small bowl combine honey, vanilla and rum extracts. Place fruit in a large bowl. Pour honey mixture over fruit. Toss to thoroughly coat fruit. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours. Toss fruit again.
Rinse whole pineapple. Slice off 1/2 inch from bottom of pineapple so it will stand solidly. Spear fruit pieces with frilled toothpicks; stick into sides of pineapple. Place pineapple in a serving plate and spoon remaining fruit pieces around bottom of pineapple.
Serve with additional toothpicks.
