Just Pickled… Pineapple

Just Pickled collage

We just love pickles and I am discovering so much that can be pickled that I hadn’t even thought of pickling and have been amazed at the taste of some of them…Who would have thought…Pickled watermelon rinds??

Today I have pickled Pineapple with Jalapenos…Will we like them? I will have to wait a few days but I love the pickled watermelon so can’t see why we won’t love the Pickled Pineapple.

Pickled Pineapple.


  • 300 gm of fresh pineapple cut into smallish chunks
  • A handful of shallots finely sliced
  • 1 pickled jalapeno sliced
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 1/2 cups of white vinegar
  • The juice of 2 fresh limes
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • A handful of chopped coriander

Pickled Pineapple Ingredients

3 sterilised jars with lids.

Let’s Cook!

Heat the vinegar, water, sugar, salt, limes and Jalapenos together and bring to a rolling boil. Turn off the heat add the shallots and leave the mixture to cool down.

Leave for 1-2 days before eating.


N.B Some recipes say use pickled jalapenos and some say to use fresh Jalapenos… I used some I had already pickled this time …I will try fresh ones next time and compare the taste.

If you use pineapple juice the cut down on the sugar you use.

If you enjoy pickles what unusual pickles do you make????? Please let me know in comments…I would love to know 🙂 x

    Carol so many recipes taken from other cultures concentrate on the familiar that it is really interesting to see you look at things happening around you and reporting the unfamiliar. As I said the other day it really gives the flavour of Thailand and your excitement at new discoveries.

    Wow!! Pickled pineapple with jalapeño?? *drool* I am DEFINITELY doing this!! I think I’ll try it with fresh jalapeño… I feel like I can get my heat level in there that way and maybe have a more intense jalapeño flavour…
