Anything interesting to do with a whole ripe pineapple?

My neighbor, who was going out of town for a while, gave me a whole pineapple last night so it wouldn't spoil in their kitchen. It is definitely ripe and ready to use. Anything interesting to do with this pineapple? Thanks!

  1. 1. grill rounds of it, serve with ice cream
    2. make a salsa, serve with fish etc.
    3. chop & use to make a pineapple upsidedown cake

    1. I haven't found anything that I like as well as just cutting it up and eating it. I eat three of them a week during the winter months when I can't get decent fresh berries.

      1. This:

        Of course....that doesn't include the recipe, but you can get a pretty good idea I'd think.

        1. Sangria!

          Grab a bottle of decent red wine, add some roses lime, toss in some pineapple, whatever else strikes your fancy, and use some good frozen strawberrys as ice cubes.

          1. I just cut them into chunks and toss with salt, pepper, and fresh lime juice. A pineapple barely lasts a day in our house.
