ananas jam with rosemary - WHB #265

days are so grey and cold lately, and I'm so longing for the spring.

but just one look at my Mahonia, even with snow on it's leaves, makes my smile.
it is full of butts, and it tells my nothing can stop the spring from coming,
it just question of time.

the lust of spring and of yellow colour, the perfume of the rosemary, the only herb still life and strong, made me make this jam.

put the diced ananas and the rosemary in a pot and cook slowly for ca one hour.
now and then mix delicately.
let cool and rest over the night in a cool place.
the next day, add the sugar and the pectin and put to cook again.
let  take a strong boil, mixing all the time let cook for 5-7min
skip the rosemary and pour in clean jars, close lids and put up side down to cool compleately.
will conserve for one year.
it is delicious on hard whole grain bread

*-** you can add more sugar and skip the pectin if you prefer a sweeter jam
*-** add 120gr of sugar and 10gr of pectin if you prefer a bitter jam.

  2. i like the sound of this!
    i hear pineapple jam is the hardest of all to get to set? i have trouble with regular jam so i'd hate to think how my pineapple jam would turn out!

  3. @simona, sta arrivando! si sente nell'aria! :-DDD
    sai che è davvero buona? ero un po' titubante, ma il dolce dell'ananas si sposa benissimo con il profumo del rosmarino che si sente appena appena.
    se vuoi un gusto più marcato metti qualche cucchiaio di grappa al rosmarino. faccio così quando voglio gusti più decisi :-D

    @anna, this come out really nice. I love the pieces of pineapple in it! :-D
    it is difficult to jellify fresh pineapple when it is cooked it behaves as all other fruit.
    I did forget this on new years eve, I made a coconut-pineapple yoghurt mousse . but it came out a disaster!! the fresh pineapple liquified the jelly!!
    horrible!!
    fortunately someone else had brought Panettone and Pandoro
    new year eves dinner was safe!! :-DDDD

    baciusss
