Pineapple & Passion fruit Jam

If you follow Manu’s Menu, you already know that my family and I have recently returned from a holiday in French Polynesia (Tahiti).  Both in my travel diary and in my review of Hilton Moorea, I have told you about the amazing jam we tasted while we were there.  Moorea actually has some of the best tropical fruit jams I have ever had.  While staying at the Hilton, we were able to enjoy them everyday for breakfast and my favourite jams were the ones made with pineapple.  Moorea is actually quite famous for its pineapples, as they are said to be among the sweetest in the world.  You can buy these jams at the local Opunohu Agricultural School, but they do not always have everything in stock.  In fact, I really wanted to buy their Pineapple and Passion fruit jam… but they did not have it.  So, as soon as I got back home and saw both pineapple and passion fruit arranged one next to the other at the grocery store, I took it as a sign that I had to try and make it at home!  I am very happy with this recipe as it tastes exactly like the jam we had on holiday!  Now, whenever I have some of it on my morning toast, I can pretend to still be on holiday… at least for a couple of minutes!!!  Enjoy!

Recipe type: Jam
Cuisine: Tahitian
  • 620 gms – 1⅓ lbs. pinapple, cubed
  • 330 ml – 11 oz. water
  • 450 gms – 16 oz. sugar
  • ¼ cup passion fruit pulp
  1. Put the pineapple and water in a pot and cook over medium heat, uncovered, for about 20 minutes or until the pineapple has softened and the water has almost evaporated.
  2. Blend it with a hand mixer.
  3. Add the sugar and passion fruit pulp and cook, stirring, for about 20 to 30 minutes or until thick.
  4. Transfer into sterilised jars.
To check whether the jam is ready or not, put a little plate in the freezer. Turn the fire off, put a small amount of jam on the frozen plate and return it to the freezer for a few minutes. If it wrinkles when you nudge it, it’s ready. If not, cook it some more and test it again.

    I LOVE sweet but this is way too sweet for me. Will need to cut down the sugar by half. It’s very nice despite the sweetness. Thanks!
