pineapple jelly from canned juice

This homemade Pineapple Jelly really is incredible and it’s made from something that you usually pour down the drain! See the short video below to see how it’s made.

I’m trying to be good about not wasting anything (within reason and being practical about it). When I found out how easy it was to make jelly I decided that was an expense we could cut out of our grocery budget. And we have tried some amazing jellies! Violet jelly, dandelion jelly and now pineapple.

Incredible Pineapple Jelly


  • 3 Cups Pineapple Juice
  • 5 1/4 tsp Pectin
  • 3 Cups Sugar


  1. Stir the Pectin into the pineapple juice. I used a whisk to get rid of any lumps.

  2. Bring to a boil and let it boil hard for 1 minute. Mine started to thicken by the end of the minute.

  3. Add the sugar. I used the whisk again to remove any lumps and help the sugar dissolve.

  4. Bring back to a boil and let it boil about a minute and a half. Mine had thickened substantially by this point.

  5. Ladle or spoon into your jar.

  6. We plan on eating ours right away so I did not put it in a water bath to seal it. But if you are wanting to preserve it for later use. Put it in a water bath to seal the lid.

  7. Jelly will last for about 3 weeks in the fridge.

I’ve had a few people ask what kind of Pectin I used. I used this Ball Classic Pectin. (You can click on the image to see it on Amazon; affiliate link)
