Canned Pineapple

In a canning class a few weeks ago I shared some home canned pineapple with the students. I had promised to share the recipe. It is really simple to do and a great way to take advantage of a good sale. I found pineapples on sale for a dollar and grabbed quite a few. I canned them in juice although you can use a light sugar syrup, if you prefer. I think they look and taste great. Here is the recipe.

Wash pineapple. Peel and remove eyes and tough fiber. Slice or cube. Pineapple
may be packed in water, apple juice, white grape juice, or in very light, light, or medium syrup.  In a large saucepan, add pineapple to syrup, water, or juice, and simmer 10
minutes. Fill hot jars with hot pieces and cooking liquid, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace. Wipe rime with dampened paper towel and apply lids and bands. Process in a boiling water bath. Pints 15 minutes, quarts 20 minutes.
