  • (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter *optional


  1. Strain the juice from the pineapple, and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over high heat add in the sugar, corn syrup and reserved pineapple juice
  3. Bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens slightly to a loose mixture; 10-15 minutes. The mixture will thicken slightly more upon cooling.
  5. Add in the pineapple pieces and cook for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in the butter if it starts to foam.
  7. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
  8. Pour into a glass jar and cover.
  9. Store in the refrigerator.


This will not be thick like say hot fudge but rather a syrupy sauce with lots of pineapple in it. The sauce will just coat the back of a spoon.
