"To marian08: If a recipe doesn't indicate draining the liquid ~ as is the case with the crushed pineapple here ~ then I think you should use the whole can, juice and all. Hope this helps!"

"Yummy! I approximated the measurements and made one serving. I personally don't think the recipe needs the sugar (or sweetener) I am a sugar lover and found it very sweet. Next time I will try it without and see how it turns out."
