Pineapple Day

Today I am dedicating my post to the delicious pineapple! Mainly because that is what I worked with yesterday!

I made some supper yummy pineapple pickles ! I found this recipe at Kids and Canning Jars!



 Now,I know you are thinking vinegar and pineapple...yuck! Just hold on for a second...yes, these do have some vinegar in them but you do not taste it ! You just taste sweet,slightly spiced pineapple goodness! These are so good....you could use them for eating straight from the jar or on ice cream or pound cake or ham or..dare I say, in some fruity rum concoction! As far as caning goes these were super easy and quick! So, next time I see pineapple on sale I intend to get some more and make up a couple more jars!

Now, on to more pineapple goodness! I am going to give you all a recipe for a pineapple meringue pie that was given to me by my Hubby's late and great Aunt Betty. If you are a pineapple lover like me you are bound to love this pie so here it goes...


Aunt Betty's Pineapple Pie

1   baked pie shell
1  c  sugar
dash of salt
4  TBS flour-leveled
1  c sour-cream
1  20 oz can crushed pineapple
1 TBS lemon juice
3 eggs separated


Mix sugar and flour and salt. Add sour-cream, pineapple and lemon juice. Heat on medium until bubbly,stirring constantly, then 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and mix a small amount into  the beaten egg yolks then add mixture back to pan.Return to heat and bubbly 2 minutes more, stirring all the while. Put in baked crust. Make a meringue using your saved egg whites and top the pie,be sure to get it to the edge of the crust so it doesn't shrink away when it is cool, and cook at 350* until brown.

Then,of course let it cool good before you try to slice it. That is the hard part for me..I usually don't make it and my first piece is a little runny! Mmmmm...a piece of cold pineapple  pie on a hot summer day....

Oh this sound yummy. I've never had Pineapple Pie but it sounds wonderful. And why not preserve pineapples? You could make "PineApple Upside Down Cake".

Good job!

Wow, how unusual in a good sort of way! I think I would love both the pickled pineapple and the pie. I love learning about new things like this. Last summer it was a grapefruit pie, this summer pinapple pie. I wonder what I will learn next?

My nephew Brandon is just crazy about pineapple. I'll have to make some for him to try.

Anyone outside of the tropical region ever tried to grow pineapple? We love them, but at $4 each and sometimes more, we don't eat them very often.

Your recipes sound fabulous!
