Fresh pineapple is so delicious, but I think I always am afraid it is going to be too messy, or that there will be too much of it and it will go to waste.
First, The Captain prepped both of them in the following manner:
1. Cut the top (leafy) end off.
2. Cut the bottom end off.
3. Stand the pineapple on end and slice off the brown skin, and make sure to remove the spiky bits around the ‘eyes’.
5. Slice each piece crosswise as thin as you like.
It will stay nicely in a covered container in your refrigerator for 2 or 3 days,as you find lots of ways to enjoy it.
Second… here are some ideas to eat up that fresh pineapple:
Mixed into an Asian-style slaw.
Added to homemade Hawaiian pizza… check out my low-carb grain free flax crust.
Mixed with other fresh fruit… here banana slices and blueberries.
And of of course you just eat the slices just as they are!
