I don't like to cook jams in big batches unless for gifts, of course. For just the two of us I like to cook a small amount so it stays fresh and doesn't need to sit in the fridge for a long time. This is also a great gift idea...a jar of jam with fresh biscuits or a loaf of bread; it should bring smiles!
This recipe for pineapple jam has only 2 ingredients; that is as simple as it gets! It is delicious on biscuits or toast and I'm sure it would be tasty as a topping for pancakes or cake!
- 1 can (398 ml/14 oz) crushed pineapple (packed in pineapple juice)
- 2/3 cup sugar
- In a medium sized cooking pot over medium high heat, bring pineapple with the juice and sugar to a boil. Turn heat down to medium; cook and stir until jam thickens.
- This does not take long; it was done in 7 minutes.
- Pour into a jar, screw lid on jar and allow to cool down.
- Store in refrigerator.
- Yield: 1 1/4 cups jam.
