20 oz. can of crushed pineapple, not drained.
1/4 cup coconut
3 cups of sugar
3 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp spiced rum
Add all of the ingredients to a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir often and then simmer till thick. Spoon mixture immediately into jars and then process in a hot water bath for 15 minutes.
2 sleeves graham crackers
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup coconut oil
Place graham crackers in a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Add the powdered sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Process until finely ground, about 1 minute. Continue grinding till fine or do in small batches in a coffee grinder. Slowly add the coconut oil in a steady stream, stopping and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary, until the mixture is smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer to a jar and seal with a lid. This will last for up to 30 days.
