Its hard to imagine a more luscious combination than pineapple jam spread over a slice of toasted Coconut Bread (page 109). This jam also makes a good foundation for sweet-and-sour sauce or a glaze for roasted meats.
- 1 pineapple
- 1 cup water
- 2 cups sugar
- Juice of 2 limes
- Peel the pineapple and grate the flesh — you should end up with about 2 cups. Put the pineapple and water in a small saucepan and cook over medium-low heat until the pineapple is soft, about 35 minutes.
- Add the sugar and lime juice and stir to combine. Cook until the mixture has thickened, about 45 to 60 minutes. Spoon the jam into a 16-ounce jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
