I have been picking up a fresh pineapple every time I do a grocery run. We LUV 'em!
I cut up the pineapple into bite-sized pieces and have them available in the fridge for, you know, whatever.
We've sampled pineapple from all over the world -- not by actually traveling to other places all over the world. (However we did visit a pineapple plantation when we lived in Hawai'i.) We do all of our worldly tropical fruit shopping at Sobey's and Safeway. (My MIL always pronounces it "Safeways", and I seriously almost spelled it with the 's'.)
Anyway, of the small number we've sampled, Roomie and I agree that the ones from Hawai'i are the sweetest and tastiest. Totally unbiased opinion. (Lordy, I still miss Hawai'i.)
However, there's something you need to know: No matter from where your pineapple originates, you must inspect them before you buy them. Seriously. You just never know what kind of exotic fauna you'll unwittingly introduce into your home.
Look at what we took home last week...
PS - The pineapple was from Hawai'i, and may have picked up the spider passing through Puerto de Pipe-Cleaner. Just saying.
