Pineapple Jam

There is one one thing that is more satisfying than a loaf of warm bread, and that is fresh, homemade jam! Incidentally, homemade jam does not always take half a day to prepare. Here is a quick recipe that makes two cups of wonderful Pineapple Jam in less than half an hour! For that fresh tang and heavenly mouth-feel, remember to just crush the pineapple coarsely and not grind it smooth. Once cooled, pop the jar of jam into the fridge and use whenever required.

It''s a terrific recipe!! I''ve made it twice now. Added ginger the second time, and it was great. Love the simplicity of this version, and it''s enough. Why should anything last for months or a year. If it''s good, it will be eaten!!

I did not know that making jam is so easy at home. This fresh pineapple jam tastes really good. The sweetness is just perfect.The quantity of jam that cam out from this recipe is just perfect i feel. Not too much nor too less. I have stored it in the refrigerator and use it whenever required. It tastes fresh everytime i have it.
