Peter Piper packed a peck of Pickled Pineapple

Post  Megan on 2/14/2011, 6:54 pm

Sorry, couldn't resist that title! Very Happy Not quite a peck, and my name's not Peter, but.... Wink

Probably not too many of us will ever grow pineapple in a SFG (I certainly won't!) but I've been wanting to try this recipe for quite a while now.



The 4th jar in the back is only partway full and I will use it soon. What happened is, the recipe called for 2 pineapples and a cup of unsweetened pineapple juice. I didn't have the juice, as I thought I'd get enough from cutting up the fruit. Not true! So I had to sacrifice some of the fruit to make juice.

It smelled AMAZING while it was cooking up...can't wait to try some! We are going to have a ham soon and that's what I'm aiming for... but from licking my fingers, I think this stuff would be absolutely wonderful over vanilla ice cream, too.

Ball Blue book, 100th Anniversary edition, page 87.

Pickled Pineapple
Makes about 4 pints.

2 cups brown sugar
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice

Combine in large saucepot.

3 sticks cinnamon, broken
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice
1/4 teaspoon whole cloves

Tie in spice bag--I used cheesecloth--and add to saucepot. Cover and simmer 20 minutes.

2 fresh pineapples, peeled, cored, and cut into spears (about 5 pounds each) (note: I tried to measure the pineapple against the jar, which left me with equal numbers of spears just about perfectly sized, and short ones.)

Add pineapple to syrup, simmer until hot through. Remove the fruit from the syrup and keep warm. Bring syrup just to a boil and remove spice bag.

Pack fruit in hot jars, leaving 1/4" headspace. Ladle hot syrup over, leaving 1/4" headspace. Remove air bubbles, wipe rims, adjust 2-pc caps. Process 10 minutes in boiling water canner.

I like pineapple now and then but don't buy the fresh any longer. I can't eat it alone fast enuf.

Let us know how it tastes.

I'm with you on that one, quiltbea. I love fresh pineapple, but I can't eat it fast enough either. Can't wait to pop open that first jar!

Your pineapple looks great, Megan. okay

Can you believe you've been canning for less than a year? It's addictive, isn't it?

Thanks Ander!

Actually, I can completely believe I've been canning for less than a year. Rolling Eyes That was another reason I wanted to make this batch...sort of "stay in practice" as it were! Embarassed Those pings really are music to my ears, though!

My homemade canning rack of bands has rusted a bit. I don't know whether to hit it with CLR (and then worry about chemicals from that! I think not!), just scrub it really well, or make another one. This time around I just rinsed it off really well and used it as-is.
