  • 2 1/2 cups Sugar organic preferred - use 3 cups if fruit is not very sweet
  • 3/4 cups Water
  • 3 Star Anise
  • 1 large Cinnamon Stick
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Pineapple, weighing 2 - 2.5 pounds - well ripened


  • Remove the skin of the pineapple, then cut into small pieces. In a heavy saucepan, boil water and sugar. Sugar water must be clear before adding the remaining ingredients, about 10 - 15 minutes. Add pineapple, star anise, cinnamon stick and vanilla extract. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes stirring often to avoid sticking.
  • Remove from heat and let cool before serving or placing into jars. Note: To make the perfect Pineapple Jam, add less sugar if the pineapple is very sweet and more if it is not. Use a wooden spoon to better stir the pineapple while cooking.


This recipe yields about 2 - 3 8oz mason jars and depending on the size and ripeness of the pineapple.
