Pine apple loukoumia


Same recipe as the strawberry loukoumia except that I substituted strawberries with pine apple pulped in the blender. They were OK.  Indeed, my kids liked them a lot but I thought the taste of pine apple was too discreet. If you want to try the recipe,  double the quantity of the pine apple pulp and they’ll be just right. I know I will, next time I make this recipe.

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 1/2 cup corn flour
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons  pine apple pulped with a blender (but I will use 6 tablespoons next time to enhance the aroma)
  • confectioner’s sugar

How to make: Combine the water, corn flour, sugar, lemon juice in pan and stir vigorously, high heat, until a transparent thick mixture is formed. About 5 minutes. Add the fruit, lower the heat to medium and continue stirring for another half an hour or so until the texture looks like this (Viky’s photo).  Don’t stop the cooking too soon or the mix will be too soft. Be sure it gets  to a point that it detaches the bottom of the pot easily as one piece and when you lift the whisk there’s a continuous stream running down to the pot. Put the mix on a flat surface, sprinkled with corn flour, and let it cool. When it’s cool, turn it upside down so it’s covered with corn flour. Cut into pieces and cover with confectioner’s sugar.
