Pineapple Apple lemon jam

Pineapple is one of those fruits that is low in pectin. Inorder to make good jam from pineapple, you would need to add powder pectin or use another fruit that is rich in pectin. This time I use one small green apple and lemon juice.

1 small ripe pineapple
1 small green apple
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water.
2 tsp of lemon paste.

1 Peel, core and slice both the pineapple and apple. Put both sliced and chopped pineapple and apple into a blender together with 1 cup of water.
2. Drain of excess juice into a cup but retain the residue. (You can use this pineapple juice for a refreshing drink).
3. Mix the remaining watery residue with 1 cup of sugar. Add in 2 tablespoon of lemon or lime juice.
4. Place the mixture in a large heavy based saucepan. Simmer gently until thicken.or about 15 minutes til setting point is reached.
5. Mix in 2 tsp of lemon paste.
6 Spoon into warm sterilised jars and cover.
