    1      can           pineapple -- (20 oz) crushed
    1      c             margarine -- at room temperature
    3 1/2  c             brown sugar -- packed
    4                    egg whites -- whipped
      1/2  c             rum
    3 1/3  c             unbleached flour
    1 1/2  tsps          baking powder
    1      tsp           baking soda
    1      c             coconut -- shredded
 
 Preheat oven at 325.  Before starting batter, wash 8 (1 pint) wide mouth
canning
   jars with lids in hot soapy water and let drain, dry, and cool to room
 temperat
 ure.  Generously prepare jars with cooking spray and flour.  Drain pineapple
for
   10 minutes, reserving juice.	Puree drained pineapple in a blender.  Measure
 ou
 t 1 1/2 cups puree, adding a little juice if necessary to make 1 1/2 cups.  Set
 puree aside. Discard remaining juice.  In a mixing bowl, combine applesauce,
hal
 f brown sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg whites and pineapple puree.
 Set aside.  In another mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking
sod
 a.  Gradually, add to pineapple mixture in thirds, beating well with each
additi
 on.  Stir in coconut.  Spoon 1 level cupful of batter into each jar.  Carefully
 wipe rims clean, then place jars on baking sheet (or they'll tip over) in the
ce
 nter of oven.  Bake 40 minutes.  Keep lids in hot water until they're used. 
Whe
 n cakes are done, remove jars which
   are HOT from oven one at a time.  If rims need cleaning, use moistened paper
 to
 wel.  Carefully put lids and rings in place, then screw tops on tightly shut. 
P
 lace jars on a wire rack; they will seal as they cool.
 
 Once jars are cool, decorate with round pieces of cloth and then glue on
flowers
 , ribbons, etc. on lid, ring and side of jar.  Unscrew the ring (the lid should
 be sealed by now) and place a few cotton balls on top of the lid (makes it
poofy
  on top), then a piece of cloth (about 3 larger than the lid) on top and screw
 the ring back on.  Decorate as desired (example pinking shears).
