PINEAPPLE - TOPLESS (EACH)

$4.99

Pineapples can be used raw or cooked and offers a sweet flavour with mild acidity. Raw pineapple can be eaten as is, and also juiced or pureed for smoothies and fruit cocktails, like a pina colada. Fresh pineapple can be roasted, grilled, or baked for desserts, including pineapple upside-down cake. It can also be cooked and sweetened as a topping for custards and cheesecakes. Try dicing and pairing fresh pineapple with tomato, herbs and chillies for a salsa to accompany seafood. The enzyme, bromelain, contained in pineapples helps break down proteins, and hence pineapple juice is often used as a marinade for meats, especially pork.

To store, Pineapples are best kept refrigerated. Fresh, cut pineapple can be covered in its natural juice and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 5 to 7 days, or frozen for up to about 6 months.
