WHY IS EVERYONE MAKING THIS FOR CHINESE NEW YEAR?

This is a top 1 must-eat during the festive season because in the Hokkien term for pineapple is “Ong Lai” – which conveys the idea of ushering in prosperity.

THE PINEAPPLE JAM

The pineapple jam is usually homemade not just because you can adjust the sweetness to your own taste, also for these cookies, the jam needs to be a thicker consistency. Much thicker than the normal store-bought jam in jars. That’s why u can see everywhere is selling pineapple during the season.

Also, the pineapples that are used to make the jam should not be the ripe ones. Because ripe pineapples contain lots of juice or liquid and we don’t want that. The perfect pineapples for this jam are the ones before turning ripe.

If you are using the traditional way of cooking the jam, you need to keep stirring on the stove until the jam thicken. Using Thermomix, you can sit back relax and just let it cook.
