DIY: MAKE YOUR OWN PINEAPPLE COCONUT JAM
One of the experiences as a young adult living all by yourself among other things is cooking your own meals – whether you know how to make anything or not. Most Saturdays – that’s if I’ve had a restful Friday – I make a proper breakfast.
“Saturday mornings are for lit breakfast.”
On this faithful Saturday morning, I wanted to make pineapple coconut jam and I did! 😁 I chose to make this because I was craving this jam with every bit of juicy pineapple and coconut on every bite. If you love pinacolada, you would love this too. They smell so divine while making them and taste yum – I should definitely make more of this and with other fruits too. Comparing homemade jam to the ones gotten from stores this taste like a real fruit jam.
