Pineapple Jam


Pineapple jam- a great way to eat this lovely fruit. This is the first time I tried making jam out of pineapple and it is o so delicious! Just that I cant believe that a whole pineapple is reduced to just one bowl of jam. Maybe next time, I'll put 2 pineapples for that. Your kids would love this one! If they dont go ahead and wallop it guilt-free.

Ingredients-
1 pineapple
2/3rd cup sugar
3 cloves of cardamom

Preparation-
  • Cut, clean and decore the pineapple. Cut into small pieces. Peel cardamom and crush.
  • Add the sugar and cook in a pan. Keep stirring for 10 minutes.
  • Cool and puree in the blender.
  • Cook again, till it reaches jam consistency.
  • Add crushed cardamom and take off the heat.
  • Cool and store in a sterilised bottle.

  2. Normally I'm allergic to pineapple but I wonder if cooking it would take off the edge. Because this looks so delicious I don't think I can resist it!
