Just browsing websites for pretty labels and came across this one.

Here.

It has a good page of recipes, too " the pineapple jam takes my fancy as I have some free apples to use up, and a large pineapple sitting in my fruitbowl.chef

Gone crazy. Back soon.

ooh pineapple jam sounds nice: I made a tropical fruit jam this year!  The only problem I had is the high sugar content of the pineapple; it burns and caramelizes very easily!smile

Won't the pineapple stop it setting properly as it does in jelly?

I'll try that again!

Gelatine is a protein and so the enzyme in pineapple presumably breaksdown the protein. Since sugar is the reason jam sets then it shouldn't be a problem. Where's the science whizz hat?roll_eyes

The recipe says cook the pineapple in water and lemon juice until tender before adding to cooked apple.  Would waiting until 'apple jam' (ie, cooked apple with sugar added and boiled up) is nearly at setting point - then adding pineapple at last minute - get over the too sweet/burning problems, do you think?  I'm considering, contemplating, and generally procrastinating over this one.  Meanwhile the pineapple is getting past its best.  Ho hum - another day, another pineapple!roll_eyes

Pineapple paste, Shelley? Worth a try?

Perhaps Heather could have a go at that ........ smile
