“Pineapple jam with spices added. I had allot of pineapple and needed to use it up, so I went looking for jam recipes. I could only find plain fruit jams, so I saw this recipe on the net for this Asian jam for jam tarts, but it took along time to cook. There was no name to the original recipe. So I took the spices, add more and then put it with the pectin pineapple jam I have made in the past. Hope you like it, it is good on toast, but allot of people have told me it is great on ice cream. I like it with ham. Time does not count 1 hour soak. Cooking time has canning time added to it.”
