Home Made Pineapple Jam

We didn't go for the morning walk because I woke up late. I slept late the previous night because I was eager to watch the ending of another Singapore Chinese drama.
 Curry noodles for breakfast.
Hubby went out to town to buy our favourite noodle with thick curry gravy. We had chicken curry and bbq pork. Hubby doesn't like mint leaves, so I had them all.
After breakfast, I went out to the garden to water the plants and harvested the above snake beans and red okras.
 Later in the morning, my neighbour came back from her shopping and blessed us with 2 papayas. Whenever she buys papayas, she will always remember us.
I finally got down to making my own pineapple jam.
The recipe for the jam is very simple (makes 3 mini tubs).
I kept 1 tub for myself and gave 2 tubs to friends.
  • 1 pineapple (I bought 1 pineapple with the skin removed + cut it into big pieces)
  • Place pineapple pieces in food processor to chop (smoothness according to your preference)
  • Slow boil the chopped pineapple + sugar (amount according to your taste) over low fire
  • Stir frequently until sugar melts and mixture starts to thicken.
  • Add in lemon juice from 1 lemon.
  • Slow boil over low fire until jam thickens to the preferred consistency.
  • Test taste and add sugar if required.
  • Let pineapple jam cools completely before scooping into containers.
  • Keep the jam in the fridge.

Dinner
I deep fried 2 types of stuffed bean curd sheet with fish paste.
Steamed snake beans and red okras.
The red okras turned pale green when cooked.
Simple dinner for 2 people.
We finished the left over black vinegar pig's trotter.
Steamed multi grain rice for hubby and no rice for me.
The above mangoes are ripe for eating. 
Delicious sweet and sourish mangoes for dessert.
Will keep my eyes open for these mangoes the next time I go shopping.

Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.

  1. Pineapple paste is on my list while I impatiently wait for my baking supplies shop to open. Perhaps I should scratch that, your recipe does look simple enough and for sure has no additives.

    Oh it's too bad the red okra loses the attractive colour after cooking!

    1. I think you can try to make your own pineapple paste. You can cook till the paste is thickened to your preference.

  14. The pineapple jam sounds easy to make. I have not eaten curry mee for so long! When MCO ends, I must visit my regular curry mee place and bring my own mint leaves (put inside handbag). LOL!
