What to do with pineapple???

  • f

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...

    1. 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.

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

        1. 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.

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

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

                1. 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.

                  1. 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. :)
