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

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

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!

  • 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.

Looks like the winter is counting its final days now.. It was raining here from past two weeks. Due to rain, our bird friends were not able to go in search of their food it seems..they were spending all the day in our balcony! For me, it was a nice company with these pigeons and colorful parrots :) Now, the rain has stopped and the birds are back to work! But they will give a guest appearance at-least twice a day!
Today's posting is a simple but special item which I learned from my sister. This is a kind of bread spread, i.e., peanut butter! It goes well with Parathas also.

Peanuts - 1 1/2 cup
Sugar 3 - 4 spoon (according to taste)

Roast the peanuts on medium flame and allow to cool.
Remove the outer skin of peanuts.
Grind the peanuts and sugar in a mixie jar into fine paste without adding any water.

Transfer it to an air tight container. You can preserve it for 1 - 2 months.
If you like to prepare crunchy peanut butter, coarsely grind 2 - 3 spoons of peanut and add it to the fine peanut butter.    

There is a nice suggestion from one of my blog friends: If the ingredients are stuck in the mixer, you can add some oil to loosen it up. Thanks a lot Radha for the suggestion :)
