This doesn't use up fresh things from the garden, etc, but it's a nice and easy thing to make from your larder. i_am_hungry

 

Take one largish tin of crushed pineapple.   Pineapple pieces or chunks can be used  if you whizz them in the blender or food processor.   If they are in syrup instead of natural juice, you need to pour the syrup away otherwise it will not work.  In fact I prefer to pour some of the juice away although not all of it.   (The juice can be drunk or used in some other drink or food.)

Mix the pineapple bits with one normal tin of evaporated milk.   Stir it well, the reaction will happen as you mix it.   It does not curdle (which is what most people would think it would do) but it does thicken.

You can top this with maraschino cherries or crushed nuts.   Or leave plain.

Wonder if it would work with single cream as I positively HATE evaporated milk.

Have done something similar to this with single cream and lime juice whipped up together with some of the zest added after, then on a base of crushed ginger biscuits in a wine glass all sprinkled with icing sugar.

I think it would work Chris as it works with cream & most citrus fruit. I ,like you, hate evaporated milk. What I'm not at all sure about is whether it would work with fresh pineapple because the enzyme it contains is altered by heat. I have a fresh pineapple so maybe I will try a small amount& see what happens¦¦¦.whistle

If you do it Hattie look forward to hearing, also I was worried about the crushed nuts in the original recipe but maraschino cherries sounds good.
