  • Amount of actual pineapple when juice is drained?
    Does anyone know how much fruit is in a can of pineapple after draining the juice?
    I've been guessing & using 1c. fruit for a 14 oz. can & 1 1/2c. for a 19/20 oz. can.
    Bought a very large can for a good price & enjoyed making some favorite recipes.

    I'll list an easy one here.

    Pineapple Cheese Pudding/Pie
    8 oz. cream cheese, softened
    1/2c. granulated sugar
    Beat cheese & sugar until smooth.

    Add 2 TB pineapple juice, not syrup, & mix until smooth. Add 1 1/2c. (19-20 oz. can) crushed pineapple, drained. Mix in.

    Add 1c. whipping cream, whipped stiff & folded in.

    Put in serving dishes or pie shell or 5/6 small yogurt size containers with lids. (They are great in a lunch.) We didn't care for it in a graham crust but others may.

    Store in the fridge.

    Yes, thanks, it does help! I would like to do a chart of all the sizes to keep handy.

    Forgot to add, on the recipe, I used 25% less fat cream cheese.

    Anyone know how much juice and pineapple in an 8 oz. can? I've seen many recipes calling for an 8 oz. can, but I only buy 20 oz. cans because they cost only pennies more.

    Quite some time ago I drained (really well) a 20 oz. can of crushed pineapple and measured the fruit and juice. I'm at a loss as to where that information is stashed. However, I did note on a recipe to use about 1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple for a recipe that calls for an 8 oz. can, drained.
    Hope this is of some help.
