MY OH MY - This is wonderful stuff! I had Malibu Coconut Rum so I used that instead of plain white rum just because I could. I can't say whether or not it set up because I just finished making it so it's still warm in the jars, but I had a little bit left over so I'm eating it by the spoonful - YUMMY! I got 8 half pint jars and will probably go buy another pineapple so I can make some more. I really don't care if it doesn't set up because it would be wonderful over ice cream or drizzled over cheesecake or just about anything you can think of even an old shoe sole - LOL!
Another one I just realized I have never reviewed. This jam tastes delicious. Mine didn't set up properly but I didn't even care. It makes a wonderful ice cream topping this way hehe. If anyone else makes it and it doesn't set, be ready; it separates. It is still perfectly fine, you just have to stir it all back together when you open the jar. If you love Pina Coladas, try this one!
Wowser! This is an absolutely awesome recipe. Smells like heaven, tastes even better. Time is good, I was done in just over an hour. I recommend making this in large quantities! This just in - try it spread very thinly in a ham and provolone grilled cheese - taste explosion!
This is very good and different. It took me forever to find cream of coconut. I bought a coconut thinking I might have to make my own, until I found it after the 4th store. So now I had a coconut I had to use up, so I cracked it open and put 1 cup of grated coconut in the recipe as well. I used coconut rum too. So the batch I made has slivers of white/clear coconut floating in it which is nice texture. This is a nice change for our Xmas basket this year. Thank you for the recipe.
I was very fortunate to receive a jar of this in the mail from KDP. I loved it!! I agree with her I could eat it by the spoonful! It is very good on biscuits!! I cant wait to use it between cake layers of a coconut cake and as a dipping sauce. Guess I need to get busy and make my own supply of it!! Thank you KPD for sending me my own personal jar!! Love ya!!
Wonderful jam! I cut the recipe in half since I only had one pineapple but used the recommended amount of pectin, it worked very well and gelled nicely. I also used lime and lime zest instead of lemon, can't wait to open the first jar! Thanks for posting!
This is a great recipe! I used lime juice instead of lemon juice and also added a little lime zest. Think I'll try the coconut run the next time. It set up just fine.
My son and I made this jam,it was our first time making jelly/jam and only our secound time canning anything we followed the recipe ,except we did add coconut that we chopped up finer and it was GREAT! It jelled very well.We made this about 2 wks, ago gave away one jar and we have one left we got more pineapples yesterday so we will be making it again and maybe we can keep some for winter LOLThis is also my first review ever so we are going to try a few changes when we make this again and I will come back and let you all know what we changed and how it turned out I have a problem with the coconut cream that is left over I want it in there!
I made this the other day...Had high hopes but...Way, Way too sweet...too expensive to make again...Really disappointed.....
Heavenly! I just finished making this and had a little left over - man is it good! I used 1 pineapple and it was really easy to make. Can't wait to try it with cream cheese on a cracker!
