What to do with pineapple???

freia Feb 13, 2012 11:41 AM

Well, I miscalculated and purchased a beautiful whole pineapple and thought I would have it finished off before I travel away from home tomorrow. Thing is, I haven't even cut into it.
What can I do with pineapple???
And I'm not into pineapple upside down cakes, just so as you know...

    Cored, sliced and cubed. In the freezer!
    Thanks everyone!

        Throw some of those cubes in tequila--a bar near me sells slices of "tequilafied" pineapple. It's potent! Safe travels. :)

        Just stir-fry it with shrimp, pork, ham cubes etc.

        But if you're traveling tomorrow, stick it in the freezer and do the stir-fry after you come home.

          Make these: http://elovestocook.wordpress.com/201... or some variation thereof (I've done them in puff pastry before in a pinch). So good!

            grill it and then layer it with pound cake, vanilla pudding and whip cream in a trifle bowl..sublime!

                Marinate slices or long pieces in a mixture of melted butter, honey, soy sauce and sriracha and grill. I love this with grilled steaks or pork chops in particular.

                  Make a salsa and put it over pork or fish. Tastes great over anything teryaki.

                    Cut it up into bite size pieces. Eat what you want. Put the left overs into a zip lock bag and freeze it. You can use the frozen pieces in smoothies if nothing else.
