Ingredients to make Preserved Pineapple (A Delicious way of preserving Pineapple at home for the festive season)

  • 1 big pineapple (Yielding 2 cups of chopped/sliced fruit)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp liqueur of your choice (optional)

How to make Preserved Pineapple (A Delicious way of preserving Pineapple at home for the festive season)

  1. Boil the water with the sugar.Bring to a rolling boil and add the Pineapple.Stir well and bring to another boil.
  2. You can place all the three ingredients in a vessel and place inside a pressure cooker and cook for 1 whistle.
  3. Take off heat and leave to cool for 15 minutes.
  4. Prepare a clean glass bottle by wiping it thoroughly with a clean cloth or kitchen towel.
  5. Add the liqueur here to the Pineapple slices if you are using it and mix well.
  6. Ladle the Pineapple slices with the syrup into the bottle and cover with a clean kitchen towel till it comes to room temperature.Put the lid on and refrigerate!
  7. Use as needed.

My Tip:

You can cut the fruit into any shape – spears, cubes, triangles or how I did – the random cuts. Pineapple corer also works well. Keep the Pineapple refrigerated.If you are a frequent traveller and prefer to shut down your refrigerator on trips then make small quantities. You can add 2 – 3 tbsp of liqueur to the syrup like white Rum or Vodka but it will eradicate the taste of Pineapple to a large extent!Helps if you want a burst of Pina Colada sometimes ;)! Use the preserve in cream cakes (called pastries in India),jam,jelly,ice cream,for puddings,in cakes,toppings and even Indian desserts like Sheera and Kulfi. Have it just like that for a great dessert with some whipped cream (optional)!
