Pineapple Vanilla Jam – No Preservatives

How many of you agree with me that homemade Jams without preservatives are the best? If you haven’t tried any yet, I highly recommend you to try this Pineapple Vanilla Jam. I bet you will never buy from store again.

Homemade Pineapple Vanilla Jam

I love Pineapples and whenever I get them I usually make Pineapple Rasam, Kerala Pineapple Madura Curry , Grilled Pineapple and will save some to make this Pineapple Vanilla Jam. My daughter loves  to spread this in her sandwich or roti for her lunch box. And as a mom I need not have to worry about the preservatives the store bought ones have. So happy kids, happy mommy..lol. Isn’t it true 😊?


How I made Pineapple Vanilla Jam

To make this Pineapple Vanilla Jam, you need just a handful of ingredients. Pineapple, sugar , lemon juice , vanilla essence and a pinch of salt. Just cook all the ingredients together till the jam consistency. That’s it. Isn’t it great?

The addition of vanilla essence definitely enhance the flavor of the jam. If you don’t want to add, you can avoid it. Still the jam will be great. But make sure to refrigerate jam in clean container after completely cools down and always use dry spoon. Yes , I stress that. Then this jam will be good for 2 weeks. But I bet this will not last that long. There will be some sneaky guys looking for this jam for sure😉.

If you tried this jam and loved it, please do tag me #cookingwithsmile in Instagram. I would like to share your photos. You can also follow me on FacebookPinterestTwitter for updates.

INGREDIENTS

Pineapple Chunks – 2 cups

Organic Sugar – 3/4 cup

Lemon Juice – 1 Tsp

Vanilla essence – 1 Tsp

Salt – a pinch

METHOD

  • Take Pineapple chunks and sugar in a wide pan.
  • Cook in medium flame till the pineapple softens.
  • Mash the chunks with fork.
  • Add Vanilla essence and pinch of salt.
  • Cook until it leaves the sides of the pan and attains jam consistency.
  • Add lemon juice and switch off the flame.
  • Give a mix. When it completely cools down, store it in a clean jar.
  • Refrigerate and use only dry spoon.
  • Stays good for 2 weeks if stored properly.

NOTES

  1. Adjust sugar as per your requirement and sweetness of the pineapple.
  2. If you want the jam in smooth consistency, skip the mashing step and blend the jam at the end. I didn’t blend as I liked it little chunky.
