DIRECTIONS

  • Open cans of crushed pineapple, take the lids and press down hard to remove as much juice as possible.
  • Put pineapple in saucepan, add stick of butter, sugar, (I use a sugar alternative), egg yolks, and stir together until the butter melts.
  • Sift the cornstarch(or flour) over the saucepan - slowly.
  • Bring to a rolling boil over low heat, stirring continously, to prevent burning,.
  • Then add the coconut.
  • You can use a small can or as much as you think your family will like. Aunt Julia didn't specify how much coconut to use, she just said to add the coconut. Go figure, I don't think she ever measured anything.
  • It takes about 20 to 25 minutes depending on how long it takes to thicken, for instance electric stoves take longer than gas stoves.
