Pineapple Jam

Makes 2 Cups
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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
