My daughter loves pineapple so this week I set out to gather as many fun Pineapple Recipes as I could. Today’s collection is a mix of Sweet and Savoury Pineapple Recipes to suit any pineapple fan’s tastes!
Easy Pineapple Recipes
Many of these recipes will work with fresh, canned or even frozen pineapple. For baking, I don’t mind using canned but I avoid it for other recipes as it adds additional sugar and the texture can be a bit too soft.
Frozen pineapple is flash frozen at the peak of freshness, so you don’t have to worry about under- or overripe pineapple – not to mention cutting up the pineapple, which is easy but can be a bit messy if you’re cooking with kids.
How can you pick a good pineapple? You should be able to smell the fruit without cutting into it, and the pineapple shouldn’t be too hard or too soft – just a small amount of softness when gently squeezed. If you’ve already bought the pineapple, you can also tug on one of the inner leaves and if it pulls out easily, it’s ready to eat. (Just don’t be that person doing that at the supermarket.)
How do you cut a pineapple? First, cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple so it can sit flat on a cutting board. Then cut the pineapple in half from the top to the bottom (lengthwise) and then cut those halves lengthwise so you have four quarters, then again so you have 8 sections. Cut off the hard core of the pineapple and then trim off the outer skin and discard.
