1.  Prepare simple syrup by adding the water, sugar and salt (if using fresh pineapple, the core can be added to the pot as well) to a medium saucepan set over medium-low heat. Cook until the sugar is fully dissolved. Discard the core and remove from heat and bring to room temperature.

2.  In a blender, combine the simple syrup and the cubed pineapple and blend until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight.

3.  Press Sorbet and then Start/Stop. Pour the mixture through the spout and then cover with the cap. Let mix until thickened. The sorbet will have a soft texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer the sorbet to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours. Remove from freezer about 15 minutes before serving.
