The mint leaves are whole, and you discard them after simmering and reducing the marinade to a syrup consistency.
The puff pastry squares puff up while baking.
Please read carefully steps 3, 4, and 5 of the recipe.
When ready to bake, pour the pineapple slices and the marinade onto a large colander placed over a bowl; drain well, reserve the marinade and mint leaves.
While the tarts are baking, pour the marinade into a sauce pan, bring to boil, lower the heat and simmer until the marinade thickens to syrup consistency; then strain. When the tarts are done, brush the pineapples and pastry with the syrup.
