  • 1 pineapple peeled and cored
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch


  • Using a box grater, grate pineapple into small pieces. Optionally, chop with a knife.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, add grated pineapple, granulated sugar, water, lemon juice, and cornstarch. Stir until sugar has dissolved.┬áBring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low.
  • Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture has reduced slightly. The jam should thickly coat the back of a spoon (and will continue to thicken as it cools).
  • Remove from heat, transfer to jars, and allow to cool completely before adding lids. Store for up to 1 year in freezer, or up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator.
