3cupsof pineapple chunks or 2 cups of pineapple juice
1 -½cupsof sugar
If using pineapple chunks, either puree and strain them to get the juice out or use a juicer.
Bring pineapple juice, water and sugar to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-heat. Cook this mixture until thickened and becomes a sticky syrup (~15 minutes). Wait for a one-string formation if you would like to proceed with making pineapple spread.
Switch off the gas and let the mixture cool completely before storing it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
To make squash - use 1 to 2 tablespoons of this spread and mix it with cold water.
Note : One string consistency – Put a drop of the sugar syrup on a plate. Touch it with your index finger and place your thumb under the index finger touching it.Now, when you pull them apart a single string should form.
