What Can I Do With This Pineapple?

While down at my in-laws this weekend, I rescued a fresh whole pineapple from a sure trip to the dumpster. Now I don't know what I can do with it...or even how long it will live.

So what can I do with my new-found treasure?

  1. slice it, wrap the slices in bacon, sprinkle with brown sugar and bake until the bacon is done. Oh so ridiculously good.

    1. I was gonna say make a fruit salsa w/ red onion, jalapeno, etc., but the bacon thing has me beat by a mile!! Adam

      1. A treasure indeed!!!! Great ideas from tzurriz & adam. Also -grill 'em with brown sugar & make an upside-down cake on the stove. Blend with fruit and milk for a delicious shake. Blend with coconut milk & add rum - pina colada time! Make a Hawaian pizza - diced pineapple and ham. If you like Spam, it goes great with that too.

        1. Hi,

          1. Slice, sprinkle with salt, pepper, and lime juice. Then eat.
