Remove the skin of the pineapple, then cut into small pieces. In a heavy saucepan, boil water and sugar. Sugar water must be clear before adding the remaining ingredients, about 10 - 15 minutes. Add pineapple, star anise, cinnamon stick and vanilla extract. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes stirring often to avoid sticking. Remove from heat and let cool before serving or placing into jar. Note: To make the perfect Pineapple Jam, add less sugar if the pineapple is very sweet and more if it is not. Use a wooden spoon to better stir the pineapple while cooking.
