Hi Bento pet. Happy New Year!

Was wondering if you could be as kind as to share your recipe for pineapple jam? The one I have just say cook 2 big pineapples with sugar - now how much would 2 big pineapples be?? Not much help there!

those tarts are quite big ya :-) very generous...

Bento Pet said...

ka..t: The recipe I use is 'agak-agak'. I'm not one who cook with measurements so you've got to improvise to your own taste as I also don't like my food too sweet.

I normally grate 15 Sarawak pineapples and 7 local half ripe pineapples. After grating, leave in a sieve to drain dry. Measure by using bowls (any type depending on your quantity).

Every six bowls of pineapple to two and a half bowls of sugar. Cook over the fire and keep stirring, add cinnamon and cloves for added flavor.

Good luck!

nightwing: It is delicious! Always have great reviews. The crust literally melts in the mouth!

sting: I love to taste enough pineapple in the tart so I usually roll a generous enough lump to satisfy my own needs!! *Greedy*

Thanks a lot for your recipe. Will try it out. 22 pineapples, eh? You must be making a lot of tarts!! :D

Bento Pet said...

ka..t: Over Christmas and CNY season, I normally make two batches i.e. 44 pineapples. A lot of 'yan cheng' to fulfill!

Grate until hand also get numb. Luckily I can get extra 'temp' maids to help, otherwise pengsan lah!

I have seen these shaped tarts in another blog. Do you need special cutters/moulds to make the shape?
