Pineapple Jam / ಪೈನಾಪಲ್ ಜ್ಯಾಮ್

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Pineapple is the fruit which is liked by many people due to its taste and nice flavor. It can be eaten in many forms; just we can remove its peel and the innermost hard part and eat them as slices. Also, it will be used for preparing varieties of sweets, juices, ice-cream, cakes, etc.  
Last time when I prepared the Pineapple Jam, I thought of posting it in the blog and took some photos. It was sitting idle in my photo bucket for long time and I couldn't post the recipe at all!! So, I thought of posting this recipe at-least today :) This jam can be used as bread spread or as a combination with dosa or chapathi. But don't eat this jam too much, because it will increase the body heat :-&


Preparation time: 30 - 35 minutes

Ingredients:
Grated pineapple (peel removed) - 5 1/2 cups (including the juicy content)
Sugar - 4 1/2 cups (depending on sweetness of pineapple)
Cardamom 2 - 3
Lime fruit - 2
Pepper powder (purely optional) - 1/4 spoon

Procedure:
Combine the grated pineapple, sugar and lime juice in a vessel and bring it to boil.  
Let it boil on medium flame for some time to get a thick syrup consistency like Honey.
Once you get the thick syrup consistency, add cardamom powder and pepper powder.
Remove it from the flame and close the lid. Transfer the jam to an airtight container once it is cool.
If you boil them nicely, it will last up-to 2 months.
Enjoy the tasty jam with bread, dosa or chapathi!


Tips:
  • While removing the peel, also remove the innermost hard layer of the fruit.
  • This jam needs lot of sugar! You can reduce the quantity of sugar little-bit if the pineapple you are using is really sweet.
