Homemade Pineapple Paste

Pineapple Tarts is a CNY must have cookie for Chinese New Year. So making our own pineapple paste is part and parcel of making pineapple tarts. Homemade Pineapple paste is without preservatives and we can adjust the sweetness to our taste. So it's healthier for us.

Homemade Pineapple Paste

6 pineapples, skinned and blended or chopped
600 gms - 700 gms sugar
6 blades of pandan leaves


Drain away half of the pineapple juice.
Pour blended pineapples into a heavy bottom stainless steel pot , together with the pandan leaves and cook mixture till boiling and juice is half evaporated.
Add in sugar and give a stir. Keep cooking on low fire till mixture is dry and golden brown.
Takes 2- 3 hours. Remember to stir occasionally to prevent burning.
Cool pineapple paste before storing or using.
