Once upon a time there was a girl who loved pineapple. She would eat it at breakfast, she would eat it at snack time, she would even eat it at midnight. She also had many baking recipes that called for this heavenly fruit, and she would always add it in with love.
Sadly this girl lived in Canada, where no precious pineapple grew.
She was gifted with two pineapple plants at her birthday one year, but only one survived. The remaining plant grew only one pineapple every year and a half. What was the girl to do? She could wait by her pineapple plant’s side for seasons desperately praying for a delicious harvest.
She could go the grocery store and just buy the pineapple and can it.
She went with option two.
And was sure to thank the good Lord for sale prices.
Step 1: Fill your water bath canner and put it over high heat on your stove. Wash your jars, and put lids in a bowl of hot water to soften the rubber seals.
- If you want pineapple rings, cut the pineapple after peeling into slices then remove the core. I used an apple corer for this and it worked well. You could also just use a knife.
- If you just want chunks you can go ahead and peel and remove the core, then just cut into chunks.
The girl now had all the pineapple she would need for her favourite baked goods, thus putting less stress on her beautiful pineapple plant.
