  • 1 medium pineapple. Very Ripe - see Note 1
  • 1 cup sugar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  1. Peel pineapple and dice into little pieces. Makes about 4 cups.

  2. Place pineapple, sugar and lime juice in a pot and mix.

  3. Place pot on the fire on medium-high heat and cover. After 5 minutes, it must have started boiling, open and stir. Reduce heat to medium, let it cook for another 10 minutes then mash with potato masher. Let it cook until the liquid is jelly-like. About 15 minutes more. Turn off the heat.

  4. Once cool, place in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and keep in the fridge. This could last in the fridge for up to 3 months!

Recipe Notes

1. Preferably use a pineapple that has started turning brown/orange for an intense pineapple flavor.

2. Note that my Pineapple Jam is chunky. I asked my kids if they wanted it smooth or chunky and they said they wanted it chunky! For a smoother jam, grate the pineapple instead of dicing it. Every other procedure remains the same.

3. This jam can last in the fridge for up to a month!

4. if you would love to know how to can this jam and store for a really long time, check out this guide.
