Pineapple Butter Waffles for Sweet Moms

One of the sweetest ways to start Mother’s Day is with breakfast in bed, double that if it’s waffles in bed! This Pineapple Butter recipe is a fun and easy way to elevate your favorite waffle mix or frozen waffles for a special occasion. Don’t forget to top your waffles with confectioners sugar and fresh fruit, like blueberries, strawberries or, of course, more pineapple!

A little warning: the butter takes about an hour to make, so you’ll want to plan accordingly or make it ahead of time!


1 ½ cups Chestnut Hill Farms Perfect Pineapple, diced

1 oz apple, diced

2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed

¼ pint water

1 ½ cups sugar


  1. Put the pineapple pieces, apple pieces, lemon juice and water into a saucepan.
  2. Place the lid on the pan and cook gently for 30-40 minutes. Stir frequently using a wooden spoon. The mixture is ready when the fruit has softened.
  3. Pour the mixture into a food processor or blender. Purée.
  4. Pour the purée into the pan and add the sugar. The amount of sugar should be adjusted as explained above. Cook over gentle heat, stirring frequently. Keep cooking until the sugar dissolves.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for about another 15-20 minutes while stirring occasionally. When the mixture is thick and creamy, remove from the heat and let stand for 5-10 minutes to cool slightly.
  6. Enjoy immediately, or place the pineapple butter in airtight containers and store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
