Pineapple Jam Recipe for Toddlers and Kids
Homemade pineapple Jam - easy, preservative free jam recipe with pineapple and brown sugar/powdered jaggery.
- Pineapple - 1/2 of a big pineapple
- Brown Sugar/ Jaggery powder - 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup
- Lemon Juice - 2 tsp
Wash the pineapple in running water thoroughly. Place it on a cutting board and cut off the stem and base of the fruit.
Cut them in the centre into two parts. Make it stand on its end, remove the skin using a sharp knife. Then slice it, cut out the sharp parts in each slice and cube them.
Blend the pineapples in a blender until smooth (leave some pieces of pineapples here and there if you wish). Add little water while grinding if necessary.
Transfer the blended pineapples into a pan and add sugar/jaggery powder. Mix well. Then add lemon juice and give a quick stir.
Stir it for 10-15 minutes until it reaches jam like consistency. Keep the flame low to medium to avoid burning at the bottom. Switch off the flame once done.
