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.
