When I was a little girl, I once famously asked my mother “mom, in the olden days, when you were young, were there pirates?” While I’ve never lived that one down, my mom did love to regale me with stories about what life was like when she was growing up, many of which may as well have started with “once upon a time.”

She told me about how she and her friends played in the bushes around her neighbourhood from dawn until dusk, never once with a parent helicoptering nearby. She told me about her first memory of colour TV and what a turning point it was when she first saw Dorothy step out of the black and white world of Kansas and into the technicolour land of Oz. And she told me lots of stories about the foods that my grandmother cooked and the things you could and couldn’t get at the grocery store back then. My how things have changed since the olden days! 

One of the things I remember her telling me was that, back in the 50s and 60s when she was growing up, it was very rare to find fresh fruits and vegetables out of season. It was equally rare, she said, to see fresh exotic fruits in the produce section at the grocery store.

While she does remember having access to a few fruits like apples, oranges and bananas pretty much year-round, she said she never had an avocado when she was young, didn’t even know what a mango was and had only ever had commercially-canned pineapple.

We take for granted how lucky we are nowadays that we not only have access to all sorts of fresh fruits and veggies that were practically unheard of just a few decades ago, but we have access to them pretty much all year round! 

Still, every fruit that hits shelves at the grocery store has a growing season just like the ones we grow close to home, and they’re typically cheaper and more readily available when they’re in season. That’s why I like to stock up on these fruits when they’re abundant and cheap and can them myself at home for use throughout the year.

One of my favourite things to can at home is pineapple. While pineapples grow year-round in Hawaii (and can be grown in many other areas as well), the peak growing season is from March to July, so that’s when you tend to see the best prices at the grocery store. Again, not always, but that’s what I’ve noticed where I live. You need to know your prices and what’s a good deal for where you live as it will likely be much different from where I live. Here, a good deal on a fresh pineapple is about $3.00 for a large fruit, so when they hit the $3.00 mark (or below, although rare), that’s when I stock up.

Now, you might wonder why I would bother canning my own pineapple when I could just as easily (perhaps more easily) buy it already canned from the grocery store. Valid question. My mother asked me the same thing.

 

Why Can Pineapple At Home?

You see, back when my mom was a little girl, commercially canned produce was all the rage. And pineapple was no exception. In fact, in the 50s and 60s, canned pineapple was a staple in American cooking and baking and can be found in all sorts of recipes from this era (I should know as I’ve inherited all of my grandmother’s cookbooks).

But in those days you had to buy it commercially canned because you couldn’t buy it fresh to can it yourself. Plus, the western world had recently come out of World War II and had entered the era of convenience and processed foods; Something many of us are now trying to leave behind us as we get back to our pioneering roots.

And so that sums up one reason why I like to home-can my own fresh pineapple: I like to combine the old ways of doing things (ie. home canning) with new technologies and modern-day access to goods (like fresh pineapple). It’s just part of the homesteader spirit in me.

But there are other reasons too; Important reasons that are near and dear to my heart…

 

Health & Environmental Benefits of Canning Pineapple At Home

One other reason why I like to can my own fruit and veggies at home is for health reasons. By preparing and canning my produce at home, I can control exactly what’s in each jar and that gives me peace of mind when I serve it to my family. 

I make my home-canned pineapple with lightly sweetened syrup, which means it has less sugar than its commercially canned counterpart. I can also be sure there’s no corn syrup or corn-based glucose/fructose in my canned pineapple as corn is a highly genetically modified crop and I like to steer clear of corn byproducts like these.

Canning my own pineapple also means I get to use the rest of the pineapple! How, you ask? Well, I can either compost it and add it to my garden, or I juice the rind. I own the best juicer in the whole world (in my humble opinion), the Breville Juicer Fountain Juicer Multi-Speed, and it works great for juicing pineapple with the skin on. But you can also make juice by cooking down the pineapple rinds in some water on your stovetop. 

I always wash my pineapples really well and scrub the skin, then I throw the scraps in my juicer and juice them with the pineapple flesh that is leftover and still stuck to the skin. Drinking the pineapple juice with the skin/rind is especially good for you as the skin is actually said to be more nutritious than the pineapple flesh itself! 

Pineapple skin is high in many vitamins and nutrients such as bromelain, potassium and beta carotene that help with everything from inflammation and speeding up metabolism to eliminating parasites, preventing heart disease, curing respiratory problems and even preventing the development of cancer cells! You don’t get that with your store-bought canned pineapple!

Last but not least, canning my own pineapple helps me cut down on waste as I’m reusing my own jars instead of disposing of new ones. This is super important to me as I and my family strive to leave a lighter footprint on this planet and live a more sustainable lifestyle. Anything that is good for the planet is good for us too, so this is always a bonus if not a motivating factor for cooking and preserving at home and DIY-ing.

I’m sure I could think of even more reasons why I prefer to home-can rather than buy store-bought, but that should suffice for now. If you’re not convinced yet then I’m not sure you’ve come to the right place! But if you’ve read this far, I’m gonna go ahead and assume you’re down with canning up some of your own fresh pineapple too. So let’s get to it!

 

How to Can Pineapple At Home

First, wash those skins good so you can juice ‘em! Plus, I just like to make sure everything I’m working with when I’m cooking and preserving is as clean and sterile as possible. I don’t wash with soap, but I do give the skins a good scrub and rinse under cold running water.

Second, cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple (I just discard these parts in my compost). Then cut off the skins and any tough, knobby bits until you’re left with nice, clean pineapple flesh.

Next, core the pineapple. If you are canning pineapple rounds, you will either need a pineapple corer or you can cut the pineapple into rounds and use a small round cookie cutter to cut out the core from each piece (or you can use this beauty to core and peel your pineapple for you). I’m not that fancy, so I just can pineapple chunks.

To cut a pineapple into chunks, cut the pineapple lengthwise down the middle and carve a “V” into each half of the pineapple around where the core is to cut out the hard core. Then slice the flesh that’s leftover into chunks and set aside.

Next, prepare your canner, jars and lids. Pineapples are a high-acid fruit so they can be safely canned in a water bath (as opposed to pressure canning). Make sure jars don’t have any nicks or cracks in them (I’ve lost jars and their contents in the canner this way). Wash jars and bands with hot soapy water, rinse them and pop them in your canner full of water. Heat them to sterilize them. You don’t need to boil, just bring water to a simmer hot enough that steam is evaporating. Get your lids out and ready. The bands can be reused, but always use new lids when canning to ensure a proper seal. Leave jars in canner until they’re ready to be filled.

Now it’s time to start preparing your syrup. While it’s possible to can pineapple in water alone to completely eliminate sugar, sugar helps to preserve the taste and texture of the fruit, so I do use a little bit when canning. I buy this organic cane sugar (I usually buy it from Costco) as it’s less refined and works just as well 🙂

In a large, stainless steel pot, combine one cup of sugar with 5 cups of water and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until the sugar dissolves. Turn heat down to medium-low and add pineapple chunks to the syrup. Heat thoroughly. 

Use a slotted spoon to pack hot pineapple into jars leaving a generous ½ inch of headspace. Then ladle hot syrup over pineapple leaving ½ inch headspace in each jar. Canning pineapple at home helps you to control exactly what's in each jar, including how much sugar has been added.

Remove any air bubbles by running a butter knife or a canning ruler along the inside “edge” of the jar. Adjust headspace if needed, then wipe rim, place lids on top and screw bands on.

Place jars in canner so they’re completely submerged in water and bring to a boil. Process pint jars for 15 minutes or quart jars for 20.

Once time is up, turn off heat, remove canner lid and let cool for 5 minutes. Then, remove from water and allow to cool completely before storing.

Et voilà! You’ve got yourself some home canned pineapple to put up in your pantry, prepared and ready to add to everything from ham and pineapple pizzas to ham roasts to pineapple upside down cakes to the slurry of other canning recipes that -ironically enough- call for canned pineapple. (I guess those recipes are from the olden days, when my mom was young;).

All kidding aside, I shouldn’t mock my mom. After all, I’m a mom and I’m now “old” now too. And the older I get, the more I find myself nostalgic for simpler times like my own mother grew up in. I only wish I could let my children roam the neighbourhood without worry. I LOVE watching old black and white movies and pretending for just a while that I live in a bygone era. But one thing I am glad I don’t have to live with is commercially canned produce. Not that I don’t love me some canned goods, but I personally would rather do the canning myself:)

      Hi Cathy,

      Yes, I actually can the excess syrup when I have extra. I use it to add to soda water or smoothies. I follow the same canning time and instructions as I do when canning pineapple chunks. You can also can pineapple juice using the same instructions as the recipe above.

    Is the 5 cups water and sugar for 1 pound of pineapple?

    Reply
    • Tish Painter

      Hi Julianna,
      The recipe calls for 12 pounds of pineapple (not one) combined with the 5 cups water and one cup sugar. This should yield you about 8 pints of canned pineapple.

    Hi. I am wondering as I could not find any reference to this in your blog, though I hate reading blogs and just skimmed most of it until I got to the recipe, but pretty sure this isn’t in there. I want to know how many jars (either quarts or pints though I am using pints as I am just a single woman and cook only for my brother and I…we are older and have no family left but the two of us. But I am used to being given an estimate of how many jars I will need to put in the canner to make sure I have enough. I think it would be nice if you would supply this information in the article right in the actually recipe. Something like Yields 12 pints or whatever…I am probably going to go use a different recipe that does supply this information but would consider using yours in the future if you supply it. Thank you.

      Hi there,

      Sorry about that! There is nowhere for me to put the yield in this recipe for some reason, only how many people it serves, so it read “Persons: 8” which doesn’t make much sense! I’ve updated the recipe to say that this yields approximately 8 pints or 4 quarts:)

    How long can I store the pineapple?

    Reply
    • Anna Sakawsky

      Hi Kiruba,

      The pineapple should store for at least a year or two in the pantry. However I’ve had home-canned pineapple that was closer to three years old and it was still fine.

    can you omit the sugar when canning pineapples?
    Trying to watch my sugar intake.

    Reply
    • Anna Sakawsky

      Hi Teresa,

      Yes! You can lessen the amount of sugar or omit it altogether and it won’t affect the safety of the product. However it can affect flavour, so just be aware of that:)

What does it really mean to be self-reliant?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what it really means to be “self-reliant.”  We talk a lot about self-reliance (or self-sufficiency) in the homesteading community, and outwardly it may seem as if the goal of “achieving” self-reliance is what ultimately...

And then there were 3 😔

Despite fending off an eagle attack the other day, a sneaky raccoon got into the chicken run early this morning and took out one of our girls.

Having animals die is definitely the hardest part of homesteading, but it’s a reality of this lifestyle that everyone must come to terms with sooner or later.

While we care for our chickens and want to give them the best life possible while they’re here, we understand that they’re livestock, not pets, and that we’re not the only creatures who see them as a food source.

Luckily we have a new flock of up-and-comers who will be ready to lay in a few months. Until then, egg production around here is gonna be pretty scarce.

So this is 35…

I decided to read my horoscope today (since it’s my birthday and all). I don’t really buy into the horoscope predictions, but I do think there’s something to be said for the personality traits we’re born with when the stars are aligned just so. Here are a few snippets that I found to be almost eerily on point:

“Tauruses born on May 18 are characterized by love of freedom and independence…They possess extraordinary creative energy, and they are never without an important cause to champion. They enjoy taking risks, but only when they believe the risk really matters.

As a rule, most decided early in life what they wanted to do and are not likely to deviate from that path. Their independent spirit makes them ideally suited to careers where they are their own boss, or are at least autonomous within a larger structure.

May 18 people want to make it on their own. No matter how successful they become, they never forget their roots and may even draw upon them for inspiration.”

Every year on my birthday I reflect on where I’m at, where I’m headed and where I’ve come from, and all I can say is that each year I’m only more grateful to be living life on my own terms, doing what I love most next to the people I love more than anything else in the world.

I’ll never forget where I came from and I’ll never have any regrets, because I wouldn’t be right where I am now without all of the experiences -good, bad or otherwise- that I’ve had along the way.

I knew when I was a little girl that I wanted to be a writer and a content creator. Homesteading came a little later in life, but when I knew, I knew.

I hope to be doing what I love and sharing it with you all for the next 35 years too! (Well, actually, if I’m being honest, I’d like to retire and throw my phone in the river long before that;) But until that day comes, thanks for being here to celebrate life with me today and every day. Cheers to another turn around the sun 🍻

My daughter stayed overnight at her grandma’s last night, and this morning when I talked to my mom she said “Evelyn told me she’s never been to the doctor before.”

Proudly, I replied “no, she hasn’t, because she’s never needed to.” This is thanks in large part to the fact that we keep a well stocked natural medicine cabinet at home and do our best to treat everyday illnesses and ailments ourselves.

Having a well-stocked home apothecary (and the know-how to use herbal and natural medicine at home) is yet another important piece of the self-sufficiency puzzle, and one that we’re working on a lot right now, both in our home and in my membership program, the Society of Self-Reliance.

If herbal medicine and building a home apothecary is on your to-do list as well, I’ve got some great tips and a printable checklist of items you’ll want to start stocking up on now so you’re prepared to make all sorts of medicinal preparations in time for cold and flu season later this year.

This is also a great time to plant certain medicinal herbs so that you’ve got a personal, sustainable supply of herbal medicine at home, because who knows what supply chain issues are gonna hit next!

To help make building and stocking your home apothecary or natural medicine cabinet a little easier, I compiled a list of all the ingredients I like to keep on hand for making my own medicinal preparations, as well as a suggested list of herbs to start growing or stocking up on, and some other great resources to help you get started preparing and using your own herbal medicine at home.

Stinging nettles are one of my favourite things to forage for in early spring. They’re ready to harvest well before just about anything is ready in our garden, and they’re a superfood as well as a medicinal plant packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, B, C & K, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus and iron, plus they’re super high in protein.

As a medicinal plant, nettles are a natural antihistamine and can help with season allergies, they have properties that reduce inflammation and especially joint inflammation and arthritis, they can be used to treat of urinary tract infections and enlarged prostate symptoms, the e been shown to lower blood pressure and control blood sugar and more!

Some people even swear by harvesting stinging nettles with their bare hands as the sting itself is said to help with muscle and joint pain/arthritis!

I, however, am not that brave. I definitely recommend wearing gloves, long sleeves, long pants and boots when harvesting stinging nettles! But the good news is that once you cook or dry the nettles, they no longer sting you. My favourite way to prepare them is to dry them and enjoy them as a herbal tea! But they’re good sautéed in stir fry or added to soups (in place of spinach or Kale) too. Whatever you do, just don’t put them fresh into a salad!

Stinging nettles grow wild all over North America (as well as other places), and spring is the best time to forage for them. To learn how to safely identify them, harvest them and prepare/preserve them, check out the link in my bio @thehouseandhomestead or go to https://thehouseandhomestead.com/harvest-and-use-stinging-nettles/

If you're looking to increase production in your own home garden, you know how important bees and other pollinators are to your overall yield.⁠

Honeybees get a lot of the glory, and for good reason: It's said that honeybees alone are responsible for pollinating 80% of our fruits and vegetables! Not to mention, they make honey... Sweet, glorious, highly nutritious and DELICIOUS honey!⁠

In this day and age of global food shortages, we need to do whatever we can to help increase food production at home and abroad, and helping honeybees is one of the best ways to do just that.⁠

Click the link in my bio @thehouseandhomestead or go to https://thehouseandhomestead.com/3-easy-ways-to-help-save-the-bees/ to learn what you can do at home to help save the bees, and the many, MANY reasons why it matters!⁠

I don't know about you, but around here spring officially marks the beginning of what we call "busy season."⁠

I always remind myself, though, that the payoff from the work we put in at this time of year is so totally worth the extra elbow grease and long hours.⁠

The seeds we sow now will provide us with food and medicine to stock our pantry and apothecary with in the summer and fall.⁠

The projects we start now will (hopefully) be finished and ready to serve us later in the year.⁠

And the deep cleaning and organizing we do now in our homes will set the stage and the tone for the rest of the season.⁠

Personally, I don't operate very well in a disorganized, messy or dirty environment. Whether I'm working or just relaxing, if my home is in disarray I feel like I can't fully concentrate on or enjoy whatever I'm doing.⁠

For most of the year this means sticking to a daily routine of tidying up and light cleaning when necessary. But in the spring, I like to take a few days to deep clean our home so that the rest of the season runs smoother; So that when I'm in the thick of gardening and harvesting and preserving season, I'm not also contending with dirt and stains and pine needles from Christmas!⁠

That being said, I don't like to use any commercially produced chemical cleaners, so I always make sure to keep a few natural ingredients on hand to get the job done.⁠

Over the years I've tried a lot of store-bought "natural" cleaners, and honestly I haven't been impressed with most of them. In fact, I find some white vinegar, baking soda, dish soap, water and a few essential oils are all I really need to clean most of my house!⁠

If the spring cleaning bug has bit you too, be sure to check out my DIY Spring Cleaning Recipes via the link in my bio. Every recipe is made with simple, natural ingredients that you probably have on hand already. I also like to add essential oils to my cleaning products for their scent and natural cleaning and disinfecting power, but you can omit them if you like:)⁠

If there's one thing we should all be doing to hedge against looming food shortages and inflation right now, it's growing some of our own food at home.⁠

I've been preaching the many benefits of homegrown food for years now... Long before any of the madness we're currently experiencing took hold.⁠

A couple years ago when I launched my first gardening course, I mentioned in my sales video that we were just one emergency situation away from grocery store shelves being cleared out entirely. Within two weeks of that video, the pandemic hit, and the rest is history.⁠

The fact is, whether you're worried about shortages, the skyrocketing price of EVERYTHING, or you simply want to eat better, healthier foods free from GMOs and chemical sprays, learning how to grow even a little bit of your own organic food at home puts power and food security back in your hands.⁠

That's exactly why I’ve teamed up with 16+ other speakers for the Backyard Vegetable Gardener's Summit: A free, 3-day online event where you can learn how to get started or get better at growing food and creating your own personal grocery store, right in your own backyard!⁠

Here are just a few of the presentations coming up this week:⁠

🌱 7 Ways To Maximize Space In Your Urban Garden⁠
🌱 Creating a Personal Seed Bank⁠
🌱 How to Generate Income From Your Garden⁠
🌱 Easy Ways to Quickly Improve Your Garden Soil⁠
🌱 Indoor Container Gardening⁠
🌱 Growing Turmeric & Ginger at Home⁠
🌱 How to Use Succession Planting for Higher Yields⁠

And more!⁠

Plus, don't miss my masterclass where I teach you everything you need to know to grow a BUMPER CROP OF TOMATOES in your backyard! 🍅🍅🍅⁠

From starting your seeds to planting out and caring for your tomato plants all season long, I'll show you the exact method we use to grow hundreds of pounds of tomatoes at home for fresh eating and preserving each year.⁠

“When I think of self-reliance, I think of any ability to rely less on ‘the system.’”

I sat down with Ashley Constance from @dirtypawshomestead and the @alittleselfreliant podcast to talk about what it means to be self-reliant, if it’s even possible to be 100% self-reliant and why it’s a goal worth striving for even if complete and total self-reliance isn’t possible.
