Nothing says tropical island more than biting into a delicious slice of pineapple. Yet all to often you cut open a pineapple expecting it to be sweet and juicy only to find that it is bitter and acidic.
According to Taste, finding that perfectly sweet pineapple takes a bit of know how.
When picking a pineapple for your shopping trolley try to look for ones with a bit of plumpness or room to give. It should emit a sweet, gentle fragrance.
Once home, remove the crown and cut off the skin. It's up to you whether or not you eat the core. Store any unused pineapple in an airtight container in the fridge.
Pineapple pairs perfectly with pork. Try a pork and pineapple stir-fry or pork chops with a pineapple salsa for a lovely summery dish.
Of course, you can't go wrong with adding pineapple to a colourful fruit salad or as part of a refreshing juice frappe.
