I love just about anything that is homemade and I don’t like to spend money on tinned preserves. I mean when you can make preserves at home why make a hole in your pocket. Most fruits can be preserved at home and pineapple is the one I preserve most because I need them for puddings, cakes, and top it on tarts etc etc. I have not added any artificial colour, preservative etc when I made this. The best part is it stays upto a year if kept in a fridge (my fridge is actually a storehouse for all those jams and preserves I make). I had preserved pears and figs in the same way as I preserved this pineapple.
How to preserve pineapple:
Pineapple: 2 medium sized pineapple, chopped.
Sugar: 2 to 2 1/2 cups. (it varies depending on the sweetness of the fruit.)
Chop the pineapple into cubes. Put in the sugar and keep aside for about an hour. Put it into a steel pan and bring it to boil. Simmer it till it becomes little thick or 1 string consistency. Store in bottles and keep in fridge.
Pls leave a comment if anyone has preserved this in the same way or has used this to make an upside down cake….thanks!
