How to make pineapple jam?
1) First, take the pineapple jam you want to make. Cut into pieces. Mix them all together into a delicious paste.
2) Now, take a separate pan and empty the paste in it. Cook well for a while and keep stirring. If you keep stirring, add a good amount of sugar. You can see a layer of froth (scum) that has accumulated on the surface during cooking but you can remove it carefully.
3) Continue to cook the paste and a little salt and strain some lemon juice. Again, cook it for a while, until it gets the right consistency like a jam.

Chef Sanjeev Kapoor had earlier shared another pineapple-based recipe – Pineapple Shikanji. The most popular way to beat the heat in the summer is to drink plenty of coolers. In the case of coolers, Shikanji is a popular choice. It is a traditional Fiji drink that uses lemon water. To make Sanjeev Kapoor’s version of Pineapple Shikanji, first mix the pieces of fruit and sugar together. Strain the pulp and add some lemon juice. In a glass, add salt, black salt and fried cumin powder with chaat spices. Add pineapple syrup, mint leaves and ice to this mixture. Top it with club soda and get your drink ready.
Coming back to fruit jams, they allow us to enjoy the taste of seasonal fruits for a long time because they must be preserved. They are one of the best ways to enjoy the bounty of nature throughout the year.
