  • 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.
