Fantastic recipe. So much nicer than the store bought version. This one is *packed* with bits of pineapple, unlike it's commercial counterpart. So easy too. What's not to love about this one. Great find Cookie! UPDATE Aug 18/08: I'm happy to say that I entered this recipe in the local fair and won First Place. I did add some Orange Zest, and it made an amazing jam even tastier...if that's at all possible. Thanks again Cookie!!!!

Great recipe. Super easy. Liked the idea that there was no added pectin. Won grand championship at county fair with first batch. Added about 1/8 tsp freshly grated ginger to make it Pineapple Ginger Jam. See more batches in the future.

This was everything it was proclaimed to be. Soooooooo easy... too easy! So I added some coconut powder (asian grocery store) to make mine a pina colada preserve. Loved this!

This is a very good and very easy recipe. I have made it over 12 times including some modifications by adding cinnamon and also adding cinnamon and dry ginger. Personally I like the cinnamon addition best. One note; the recipe above notes a yield of two jars but should specify 2- 8oz jars. This is particularly true if cooked to 220 deg. I doubled the recipe to 4 cups of sugar and 40 oz of crushed pineapple and by the time it reached 220 the volume was reduced to 32 oz total yield. I hope the result is not too thick.

Very good recipe! The only thing I did different was I pureed a can of sliced pineapple and to that I added 1 teaspoon of finely diced ginger and it was perfect. I loved this, it is a definate keeper. Thank you for the recipe.

I just happened to have a can of crushed pineapple in the house when I read the recipe. I immediately gathered my canning utensils and set out to make this preserve. I added some lemon zest - didn't have any oranges - and a dash of rum. Delicious and super easy to make. Thank you, cookiedog, for posting, this is a great recipe!

Make these preserves! Oh so easy and so good. I mixed some with soy sause and horseradish and dipped cooked cold shrimp in it. I could eat this stuff on sneakers. Thank you!

WOW! What a fantastic find! I haven't been able to find pineapple preserves in Australia but now I don't even need to try. I did add about 1 tablespoon of cornflour (cornstarch) to a large drained, pureed tin of pineapple rings. I also cooked my jam in my bread maker on Jam setting. Tonight we had this in Aloha Chicken Wings

This was great! So easy to make and just wonderful. As I was making it my mom walked in the kitchen and she told me that when she was younger she used to do all sorts of preserves. She said that this was the way they did it and that they also just added about a teaspoon of corn starch when bringng the pineapple and sugar to a boil. That will help thicken the jelly like consistancy!

I made this with a can of tropical fruit salad in passion fruit juice and I have to say it is just full of flavor. I ran it through a blender until it was just broken into small pieces so there weren't any chunks and then added it to the pan with the sugar. I love this recipe.
