Since my last post on pineapple tarts, I’ve received a few emails asking me about the pineapple jam or pineapple tarts filling—how it looks, the texture, the inside of the pineapple tarts—and I thought I would share this picture of pineapple jam (pineapple tarts filling) with you.
A perfect pineapple jam or pineapple tarts filling should be golden brown in color, with a sticky texture. The golden hue comes from the sugar added during the cooking process.
Last night, I made another two trays of pineapple tarts and converted them into pineapple shortcakes by adding 1 tablespoon of vegetable shortening. Oh my, what a phenomenal improvement—the pastry was SO crumbly it practically melted in my mouth. Needless to say, I finished all of them, again!
Check out the beautiful inside of the pineapple tart above, which shows the delicious pineapple jam filling!
