Favourite jam recipe at Jenna’s B&B in Panajachel, Atitlan

There are several fruits that come fresh, ripe and plentiful all year round in Guatemala: Watermelon, cantaloupe, papaya and pineapple among others.

Sometime ago I thought that ginger, which is also fresh and plentiful, would be a nice addition to pineapple. So, I’ve been making this jam which guests have been surprised and pleased with.

Cut the pineapple in small 1/2 inch squares

For 3 lbs of pineapple:

1 1/2 lbs of sugar, (you can use whatever kind of sugar you like)

1/2 lb of ginger, sliced thin and cut in 1/4 inch pieces.

Place all the ingredients in a pot, bring to the boil and let it simmer for an hour.

Note: you will end up with extra juice which makes wonderful pineapple frozen daiquiris! Make them with or without rum/vodka!
