I remember making my first jam when I was in Grade 5. I didn’t have enough patience back then so the final product didn’t go very well. I’m a bit wiser now.
Yield: About 1 1/2 cups
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 90 minutes
1 pineapple, grated, juice reserved
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
Juice of 2 lemons
1. In a saucepan, combine pineapple, with juice, and water. Cook over medium-low heat until the pineapple is soft, about 30 minutes.
2. Add the sugar and lemon juice. Cook until the mixture has thickened, about an hour. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a jar.
