Tips and Variations:

  • Add a teaspoon of turmeric powder with the sugar for a deeper golden color.
  • Spice it up with a pinch of cayenne pepper or a few cloves.
  • Get creative with citrus! Replace the lemon juice with lime or orange juice for a different flavor twist.
  • Instead of fresh pineapple, you can use canned pineapple chunks (drained). However, the flavor will be less intense.
  • Don’t forget to get creative with your jam! Use it on toast, bagels, yogurt, or even as a glaze for chicken or pork.

With this recipe, you can enjoy the taste of summer sunshine any time of year. So grab your pineapples, crank up the tunes, and get ready to bottle up some homemade happiness!

  • 1 large Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

  1. This looks delicious! I’m thinking of canning it but will test for pH etc. Could you share the approximate weight of the pineapple used? We grow them in our yard and they’re all different sizes and shapes depending on how the growing season has gone. Also, how much does the final recipe yield?

    1. Hello Susan. Thanks so much for the comment. We have updated and republished the recipe. Having your own pineapple trees sounds awesome! Thanks again, and have a great time canning.
