  • I like this recipe very much and have used it several times , each time trying something new .I have tried cooking the jam longer to thicken it and it becomes too thick and sticky to spread , and too dark as well , I have tried to cook it for less time and find that when I put it in the jars the fruit settles to the bottom and the juice on top !……Third time lucky …I boiled the jam for about 30 minute and added 1 tablespoon of pectin , then boiled on high heat until soft set is reached and took it off the stove . after +- 15 minutes I put it into sterilised jars ……fantastic , the light gel keeps the fruit afloat in the jam and allows for even spreading on bread etc . Very happy with it now and everybody loves it . Thanks a lot Anita Mokashi !

  • Thank u 4 the recipe… i and my clazmts enjoy making pineapple jam! i was thiNgking that it would be too hard.

  • Great knowing you and your simple but fantastic pineapple jam cooking recipe. I didn’t have the taste of it actually but I already imagined how delicious and lovely a bite of it is. I only wish I could cook pineapple jam as good as you did. There is abundant fruit here in Solomon Islands.

  • Thanks my friend, for your easy recipe of pineapple jam. I was searching the net for n easy one n found yours..
    Thanks a lot Anitaa

  • I cooked this jam as per your instructions but used lemon instead of the lime( limes are not normally available here ).
    I tested a small amount at 10 min.& found that to be sufficient. After it had cooled completely in the bottle I removed the lid &
    held the bottle upside down it stayed as it should solid yet spread easily. I refridgerated it overnight but found it difficult
    to spread so I leave it out. PS : i used your measure of 1/4 cup …for
    the lemon. NEALE south africa

  • My sister love to cook this Jam
    ..but after she stored them in the jars and boiled the jar again with lid n jam in the jars . It become watery inside the jars. . Is there anything she did wrong with her cooking and canning it. .

  • Your simple recipe is good and simple but unclear about quantities. Pineapples can be of various sizes and weights. Similarly “cups ” . Better to give weights, in grams or ounces. Thanks.

  • Hi thanks for the recipe, have a question regarding the size of pineapple. I live in Ireland, pineapples in supermarkets here are quite small compared to in Asia. How many cups of pulp would you get from 1 pineapple in your recipe?

  • I tried to make the jam .boiled with continuous stirring. The item was kept for cooling. After an hour the whole thing is stuck in the pan solid. Can any thing be done to loosen it?
