Super Easy Roasted Pineapple Jam

Following the success of our Roasted Strawberry Jam, I knew I would be experimenting with making another slowly roasted and caramelized fruit jam.

Last week provided another opportunity when very large, ripe, sweet golden pineapples were on sale at our local market.

Fresh Golden Pineapple cut in pieces on white background.

Fresh golden pineapple works very well in this recipe.

I not only started thinking about using the pineapple to make this beautiful jewel-like jam but also about using that jam in an ultimately delicious Pina Colada Cake. Be sure to check that indulgent recipe out too.

The jam turned out beautifully! I’ve since enjoyed it very much on my morning toast. I also loved it this morning on some leftover Buttermilk Biscuits.

Those biscuits were leftover from our barbeque dinner last night.  I quickly wrapped them tightly in aluminum foil and warmed up in the oven first.

Then, I slathered on some melting butter and topped with this golden, luscious jam. It was a bit of an indulgence this morning but I just could not resist…can you blame me?

Roasted Pineapple Jam

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
Roasted Pineapple Jam. A super easy way to make jam by roasting the fruit to concentrate and intensify the delicious tropical pineapple flavour.

Ingredients

  • 1 whole large golden pineapple, the riper the better
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp vanilla extract

Instructions

    1. You will want the pineapple to resemble a "crushed pineapple"consistency like that found in canned pineapple.
    2. I peel, core and cut the pineapple into bite sized pieces and then pulse them in a food processor just a few times to break them into smaller pea-sized pieces.
    3. Add the prepared chopped pineapple to a glass roasting pan alone with the other ingredients and stir well.
    4. Roast at 350 degrees F for up to a couple of hours or longer depending on the water content in your pineapple.
    5. When the liquid has practically disappeared, it is done.
    6. Stir it occasionally and watch it closely, especially toward the end of the roasting time, because the concentrated sugars can burn very quickly.
    7. Cool completely before serving. Makes about 3 cups.

Hi! I was looking at this recipe because I love pineapple, and I've been wanting to experiment with different fruits to make butter. I can't seem to locate anything that says if pineapple can be used like apples to make pineapple butter. But this looks better than that!

Can this jam be canned using the normal water bath method? Does it need any added pectin for preservation?

I love the idea of this, simply because I've never heard of such a thing! The color is glorious.
