Pineapple Jam in Microwave

    Im a Jam lover.... when my SIL introduced to eating with dosa with jam i just felt love with eating everything with Jam.I love to have jam with Dosa,idli,chappati and poori.oh i forgot and my daily toast.i love soo much and after blogging i thought of trying jam in home.So my first experiment is Strawberry Jam and already i finished it.Well for my company, my lil one shares with me.

     I bought a pineapple from costco and we are not in the mood of eating.Mostly i freeze it and use with our juice.But my hubby told me to make jam with pineapple.So i did with my microwave.oh my... i think this is great way to make jam.Its easy and messy free and you dont have to sit near the stove and keep on stirring.Do try and let me know.

Ingredients :
Pineapple Puree : 3 cups
Sugar : 1.5 cups(I used 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup light brown sugar)
Lemon Juice : 2 tbsp

If you like few pieces of chunks in your jam you can cut into small cubes and mash it with potato masher or puree the small cubes in blender to make puree.I blended them to make puree.

1.In a big wide bowl,mix puree and sugar.
2.Add the lemon Juice.
3.Pop into M/W,set for 5 mins.
4.Take out and stir.
5.Pop again and set for 20 mins and stir in between as the mixture boils overflows.
6.Keep checking and stir every 3 mins until the jam thickens.
7.When you drop the jam from a spoon,it has to come altogether.
8.Cool and store in a jar and store in fridge.

Enjoy with some toasted bread or even with chappati.

Have a nice weekend.
