Luckily, the local bakers found the solution. They made pineapples into jams as fillings for traditional pastries. Considering that the public were not so into the sourness and the fiber of pineapple, bakers added sweet ash gourd, maltose and sugar. Yet, as time moved on, the taste changed accordingly.
