I had some pineapple chunks sitting on my counter. I was thinking of some recipes to finish those chunks. Suddenly this recipe, which I saw in Nisa Homey's Cooking is easy blog ,flashed for a second. I saw this recipe two years back. So prepared "No bake pineapple pudding " using this pineapple preserve as a layer. This pineapple preserve can also be used as spread for bread. We can prepare this pineapple preserve and refrigerate it. We can use it whenever we need. Linking this recipe to Priya's Versatile Recipe's event ,"Lets brunch on sundays "
1.Pineapple pieces - 1 cup
2.Sugar - 1/2 cup
Chop the pineapple and take the skin away. Chop it into fine pieces. Take a bowl,add the pineapple pieces and sugar and let it rest in the counter for atleast an hour. This way ,sugar gets blended with the pineapple pieces and pineapple will let out its juices.
Now transfer the pineapple pieces ,with its juices to another pan . Let it get cooked in medium flame. The mixture will become thick .
* Add sugar according to the sweetness of the pineapple. Mine was too sugary, so reduced the amount of sugar here.Becoz my pineapple was too sweet.
* Don't cook the pineapple to mushy.It should be thick, but still has to hold its shape.
* We can add some vanilla essence to this at last.
* This preserve can be kept in fridge for almost 15 days. We can use this as a spread for bread also.
