Pineapple Upside Down Cake Freezer Jam

For May's edition of Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned Micha, the blogger behind Cookin' Mimi.  She says, "The food you will find here on Cookin’ Mimi is exactly what I cook every day. It’s a mix of traditional Southern food, good old American home cooking, and my favorite ethnic inspired dishes."

After browsing Micha's blog, I settled on this Pineapple Upside Down Cake Freezer Jam.  If you haven't made freezer jam, give it a try!  It's easy to make and who doesn't love homemade jam on their toast??!!!  I found this recipe intriguing, I love the idea of pineapple upside down cake in a jam.

This jam is a beautiful color and is a tasty addition to any morning breakfast.  I'm also thinking I will give this a try as a glaze for grilled chicken.
