- 1 cup pineapple peeled and finely chopped or grated
- 3/4 th cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon lime water
- 1/2 cup water
Add pineapple and water in a saucepan and cook on low-medium heat for 30 minutes. The pineapple should turn soft.
Add lime juice and stir. Add sugar and mix well.
Cook till the pineapple and sugar mixture thickens. One string consistency should be obtained from the sugar solution.
After cooling, transfer the jam in airtight jar. Next day store it in refrigerator. Remains good for up to 2 weeks.
- In step 1, if pineapple does not turn soft and water evaporates, then add little water and cook again till pineapple turns soft.
- To check for one string consistency, take a plate and add few drops of sugar syrup from the saucepan. After it cools down, using thumb and forefinger, stick the syrup between them. Release the 2 fingers. If single thread is obtained when the two fingers are released, it means one string consistency is achieved.
- Instead of grating pineapple or chopping into small pieces, you could also grind it coarsely.
