Ok we all love making apple pies at home just cause of the way it makes our home smell like heavens kitchen right? Now what if you tell you, you do not need to go through all that pain for the same effect  😉 My simple solution to ripe pineapples and a need for some sugar is my spiced pineapple jam. It is the easiest thing to make and you just have to dump it all into one pot. I plan on making pancakes this weekend so this will go perfectly with it. Here is my recipe and I hope you try it out.

ps. I bet your family will ask you if you are making an apple pie at home 🙂

 

Ingredients –

  1. Pineapple – 1 ( cleaned, skin cut and chopped) around 400 gms
  2. Sugar – 1/2 cup ( I used honey )
  3. Star Anise – 2 big
  4. Cinnamon – 2 sticks
  5. Salt – just a pinch
  6. Water – 3 – 4 tbsp

Instructions:-

  1. In a heavy bottom pan, add pineapple and honey / sugar with water
  2. Leave the flame on low. Stir occasionally. Add salt after 5 mins
  3. Now when you see the pineapple get soft and squishy add the star anise and cinnamon
  4. Use whole spices and not powder
  5. Let the mixture simmer till the water has evaporated till 70%
  6. If you find that the pineapple has not softened do add a tbsp of water
  7. Finally when the water has reduced and the pineapple is all nice and masked up, take the pot off the stove and let it cool. Now if you like the consistence go ahead and bottle it up once cooled
  8. If not used a spoon and fish out the whole spices and blend the pineapple for a min till it is nice and smooth
  9. then empty the jam into your bottle and put the whole spices back into the bottle
  10. Enjoy
