Pineapple Jam

Most common breakfast items are bread and jam. And when it comes to jams, one would always prefer homemade jam , rather than those available in the market because all readily available jams have preservatives. So,  if we can make jams at home with seasonal fruits, it can be far more tastier and healthier option too. One can make it less sugary depending on taste. 

Ingredients :

Pineapple – 1 medium size 
Sugar -2 ½  cups or as per taste 
Lemon Juice – 2 tbl sp
Jaifal (Nutmeg)  powder – ½ tsp 
Pineapple essence – 1 tsp (optional, I don’t use it a natural pineapple flavour was good enough for me)


1. Peel and chop pineapple cubes. Take them in a blender and make them into a coarse puree or smooth puree (as you wish).
2. Now pour them in kadai, add in sugar and mix well.
3. Heat it up, cook them for 15 to 20 mins or so, till the sugar is dissolved and get little thick consistency.
4. Now add nutmeg powder and mix well.
5. Switch off the flame and add the lemon juice. Mix well 
6. Allow it to cool down completely.
7. Now take a clean dry glass jar and store this jam in it.
8. Enjoy with bread, biscuits and chapatti.
