Pineapple Topping for Pineapple Ice Cream

This ice cream has an entire jar of pineapple ice cream topping in the recipe. I discovered how flavorful this topping is when I created my pineapple salad dressing. It contains pineapple bits and lots of flavor! You can substitute a jar of pineapple preserves for the pineapple topping. However, use preserves without strong spices so it does not change the taste of the ice cream.

Chill the Ice Cream Mix

After you mix all the ingredients, refrigerate the mixture until chilled. Or chill all the separate ingredients before mixing them. Cold ingredients help the ice cream to freeze faster. It also creates a creamier ice cream because the ice crystals will be smaller. In addition, chill the ice cream cylinder if using an old-fashioned one packed with ice and salt for churning.

How Did Pineapples Get Their Name?

Pinecones, in the 14th century, were first called pineapples. It seems that the word “apple” was used by medieval botanists to refer to any foreign “fruit” on a tree. But eventually, pinecones were determined not to be a fruit, and the name was passed to the fruit we know as pineapple today.

Pineapples are Known by Another Name

Before pineapples were called pineapples, they were called ananas and are still called that in many non-English speaking places in the world today. And although ananas (pronounced aa naa naaz) is bananas without the B, the two fruits are not related.
