I feel a little silly doing this again.......But here goes...
"Oh JU! i am making this tonight!!... LOL ~ I've had the jam in the fridge for a week...and tonight I'm making it ~ what a surprise when I came over and saw your tarts!!! we have the same same mind Ju! :)
~Ju~GONE Ju .....the tarts did not survive the night....LOL....i only made 25 pieces because I was craving them...i was hoping no one would ask for them but not so. Now I have nothing to blog about..well nothing decent ...unless I blog on my left over chicken curry from last night (before it's time for lunch)...
uh uh.. I don't think so ~.
Anyway I'll just go stick my head into my pantry, the fridge, the freezer ..whatever..and see what I can come up with for this very demanding blog of mine!
The things we do! SIGH
Gone?! LOL!!! Must be really yummy! And er ... 25 pieces won't go very far considering there are more than 2 people in your house! ;) I think 25 pieces aren't enough for my 2 older kids, so you must have rationed your tarts? He he!
Yes Ju ..only 25...which means..... I have left over pineapple jam!! Wooo hoo!
So the pineapple jam became an overnight star!
That was my dear friend Ju, The Little Teochew up there :)
Contrary to what many people think making pineapple jam is as easy as pie. I lied. It's easier than pie.
You just need to watch the pot and stir it once in a while. And it doesn't take long at all. I think I cooked this in half and hour.
And I have to say that this is really good. The cinnamon makes all the difference.
1 small pineapple
50 - 60 gm of light brown sugar or more if you like it sweeter
1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder
1 small cinnamon stick
pinch of salt
Peel and chop up the pineapple discarding the fibrous stem in the middle.
Put all the pieces in food processor and pulse until very fine and mushy.
Place the pineapple mush, the sugar and the cinnamon stick in a thick based medium sized pot over a small flame.
Cook until the jam is dry or as moist as you like it. Add cinnamon powder and a little salt if using. Taste and make it just perfect for you.
Cool and store in a jam jar. Make pineapple tarts or spread on toast. YUM!
