Pineapple Jam - Revisited

Similar recipe as what I did more than 5 years ago!  Lazy to grate the pineapples, so I blend them in a food processor instead! fast & hassle free heee....The result is better than grating cos the fibre of the fruits is broken down by blending and is much smoother in texture. I used microwave method instead of cooking over the stove as I do not have the time to stand in front of the stove to do the stirring!! yes it definitely cost a bomb by cooking the jam by using microwave but nevermind, just once a year for making the lovely pineapple tarts hehehe....

from this big pot....

to this.....

Ingredient (approx 1.1 kg of jam)
  • 5 pineapples, peeled
  • 320gm sugar
  • 5 cloves
  • 3 star anise
  • 2 cinnamon

  1. Cut pineapple in chunks, retain core if tender, blend till fine. Drain on a colander. (do not use a spoon to press over the fruits, let it drained naturally) Transfer the blended pineapples into a large microwave proof bowl. 
  2. Add in spices and cook on high in microwave for 50 minutes uncover till it is almost dry. Stirring 2-3 times in between. 
  3. After 50 minutes add sugar and cook on high, for 2 hours 10 mins (stirring occasionally in between) till the jam become rollable. Cool completely before storing in airtight container. Chilled and ready to use.
