The origin of pineapple tart

The origins of the pineapple tart possibly derives from a Portuguese influence back in the 16th century when the pineapple, a fruit native to South America, was introduced by the Portuguese Empire to Asia, specifically the Malay Peninsula.

History of pineapple

Pineapple (Ananas comosus) is an incredibly delicious and healthy tropical fruit. It originated in South America, where early European explorers named it after its resemblance to a pinecone.

Pineapple tart or tart nanas is a small, bite-sized pastry filled or topped with homemade pineapple jam. It is commonly made and enjoyed during festive seasons by Malaysians and Asians.

The pastry is often buttery and flakey, thus it gives a rich, buttery, tender and melt-in-the-mouth texture. The pineapple jam is usually made by slowly reducing and caramelizing grated fresh pineapple that has been mixed with sugar (white or brown) and spices like cinnamon, star anise and cloves. Typical shapes of pineapple tarts include a flat, open tart topped with pineapple jam under a lattice of pastry, rolls filled with jam that are open at the ends and jam-filled spheres or elongated shape.
