1.Pineapple will vary in size and the amount of fruit flesh you get as a result. 2 Pineapples at 1.2 kg, will be around 400g after juice is extracted. Leave enough moister in flesh to cook. Remember we are trying to cook pineapple and dry out into a jam.


2.Adjust sugar to your sweetness preference.


3.The mix of butter and margarine make it creamier. I use can butter (Red feather from NZ, Indonesians swear by Wysmann from Netherlands)


4. Do not overwork pastry as it will cause cracking.


5. Ensure to egg wash the bottom of tarts. The second wash Ileaft it out.


6. Yes you can make this in a TM31 as well
