Sue really likes pineapples so I decided to make her some pineapple atchar. The recipe is simple, easy to make and quite delicious - perhaps you want to make some for yourself.
|2||teaspoon||Maizena (Maizena is a brand name for a popular cornstarch)|
|3||each||Large ripe pineapples - peeled and cut into 1 cm pieces|
|Spices - to be fried together|
|1||teaspoon||Mustard seeds - white or black|
|3||each||Green chillies - chopped|
|In a large pot, bring to boil the first 3 ingredients together.
Then add maizena and vinegar, cook until thick - stirring all the time.
In a pan, fry the spices together until the mustard seeds start popping.
Add the pineapples and the spices to the syrup in the large pot.
Stir a couple of times and bring the mixture back to boil.
Once at boiling point, can into sterilised glass bottles.
Make sure the lid seals properly.
The atchar is ready to eat from day three.
