    I thought this was a lovely recipe. Very easy to make & tasty too. I have uploaded my picture so you can see. The only thing that I would change is the amount of sugar as I found the jam to be rather sweet.  -  18 Oct 2009

    thanks for recipe. Tweaked it, in the method - weighed pineapple flesh which came to 1lb 6oz and used equal amount of sugar. Boiled pineapple for 1/2 hour first as suggested, but as I used jam sugar with pectin in, after adding sugar and stirring on low heat till dissolved, did a rapid boil for only 10 mins and it was set. (used the method of putting a teaspoonful of jam on a cold plate in the fridge for a few minutes to test if the jam was set enough). Lovely flavour, a bit tangy which was lovely probably my pineapple was a bit underripe still. Will def do again. I got one and a half jars.  -  01 Feb 2015
