In a 3-quart stainless steel saucier, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, salt, and eggs, followed by pineapple purée and lemon juice. (If you like, save the pineapple core and lemon rind to make a no-cook pineapple syrup.) Cook over medium-low heat, whisking gently but constantly, until warm, about 3 minutes. Increase heat to medium and continue whisking until thick and steaming-hot, about 2 minutes longer. When the custard begins to bubble, set a timer and continue whisking for exactly 30 seconds to neutralize a starch-dissolving enzyme found in egg yolks.
