Ripe pineapples

Freshly harvested, ripe pineapples have the most wonderful honeyed flavor with rich yellow flesh, but you have to live near the growing area to enjoy them.

If you don't, you may have to search to find ones that haven't been harvested while still very green.

In any case, choose one that is fully colored, with a fragrant scent on the bottom, and no moldy or sour-smelling areas.

Ripened ones are preferred because eating green pineapples can be an intestinal irritant, acting as a purgative.

You can store it for a few days in the refrigerator, or up to 7 days for the cut-up chunks.

Pineapple's thorny rinds

Unless you are using this fruit for display, you have to cut the thorny rinds off.

The easiest way is to cut off the top and bottom, place in a sturdy, shallow dish to hold the juice, hold the fruit vertically, and carefully slice downwards to remove the rind.

Then you can remove any remaining thorny "eyes" with a tip of your knife.

Cut the fruit into quarters and remove the pithy core before cutting it into your preferred serving sizes.

Tasty tropical recipes

This fruit is used in most tropical recipes for its delicious flavor and the low calories in pineapple.

This includes fresh fruit salads, dessert ambrosias, cakes, pies, puddings, ice cream, candy, pineapple ring salads, skewered kebabs, fresh salsas, yogurt, and smoothies.

Because a ripened pineapple contains the digestive-helping enzyme bromelain, this fruit is also added to main dishes like ham, seafood, shrimp, curries, and rice entrees.

It is also a favorite when processed into juice, preserves, and marmalades.

Available worldwide

This fruit originated in South America, is the symbol of hospitality, and is now grown in warm climates worldwide.
