Easy to make pineapple jam

25 March 2021

I am happiest when I make, and even though I am tied to work on weekdays and most of weekends, I still try to squeeze in a hobby with the little free time I get. Last weekend, I was able to make pineapple jam!

It’s yummy and perfect with buttered toast, and so easy to make, too! If you'd like to make your own pineapple jam, you just need ripe pineapples, a bit of grated ginger, honey, and lime juice (that I didn’t have so I used dalandan).

I will probably use a blender or food processor on my next batch so it’s finer, although I loved the chunks on this batch, too.

Anyway, I was lucky because I already had the ingredients needed in my ref and pantry, and the Instant Pot made everything a breeze! If you don't have honey, you can also use brown sugar or stevia, but honey is your best bet because aside from being a natural sweetener, it is also a superfood! 

One problem with superfoods is that they don’t appear appetizing. Why would you have a kale smoothie when you can opt for bananas and chocolate instead? The good news is, honey is the perfect antidote. After all, it’s sweet and delicious, and it has incredible anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. They are intensified if the product is organic, such as the raw and unfiltered stuff from Local Hive Honey. You need to be careful of using it too much because it does have quite a few calories, but a teaspoon on your breakfast cereal should be enough to start the day off right!

If you’ve heard the term “superfood” before, you will know that the ingredients that fall into the category aren’t cheap. For many people, it’s enough to put them off for life, or at least until they can afford to add them to their shopping carts.

Your health shouldn’t be decided by your budget. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be if you focus on affordable superfoods. Yes, they exist, and yes, they are just as effective at boosting your immune system and helping you to burn fat. Aside from honey, here are some other examples!

Sweet Potatoes

Yes, the dreaded carbs don’t have a healthy reputation. In reality, the way people view carbohydrates is unhealthy since they aren’t all bad. Rice, for example, is a staple of some of the healthiest cuisines in the world. Still, opting for a less starchy alternative is never a bad idea, which is why yams make their way onto this list. They are sweet and tasty, unlike their white potato cousins, and are excellent sources of fiber, beta-carotene, and vitamins C and B6. you can find them at all good supermarkets.


If you’re ever struggling with your budget, broccoli is the ideal choice. Plus, Web MD says it’s almost as good for you frozen as it is fresh as the vegetable is frozen at peak harvest when its healthy properties are at their peak. You get everything from B vitamins to calcium from this leafy veggie, but the main attraction is the detoxifying elements that regulate the liver and kidneys. They are ideal after a long lockdown, particularly if you have been indulging! With that in mind, make it your staple every time you want vegetables with your meals. I love broccoli and I should add some to my next grocery cart!


Oats are packed with nutrients that fight cholesterol. This is great for middle-aged men and women who are attempting to remain healthy as their bodies age. Also, they come in different shapes and sizes. Therefore, you can have them in the morning as porridge - a drop of honey will work wonders - or you can opt for a savory option, such as cheese oats. I also love preparing overnight oats! Which reminds me... I need to buy more oats and yogurt because I currently have an abundance of bananas and honey, yum!
