Pop Pineapple Quiz

Okay, so you run into the produce store for something, and they have pineapples on sale for $.88 EACH.  What do you do? You forget why you were in the store in the first place and grab the store limit of 4 pineapples.  Then what?  What else, you can them.  Granted the fruits were very small, but I canned 3 pints and (4) 1/2 pints.  I made a very light simple syrup (3 cups water, 3/4 cup sugar) and boiled to dissolve the sugar.  I then took the pineapple cores, chunked them and added to the boiling syrup.  I let that boil for a few minutes to get a bit of pineapple juice. I canned them in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.  Now I know exactly what I'm getting in my canned pineapple.
