Though most commonly associated with Hawaii (or perhaps the Polynesian islands), the pineapple is actually native to the regions of South America that now make up Brazil & Paraguay.
Chief among the reasons for our pineapple enthusiasm is its versatility. With its skin still intact, the Pineapple is a fabulous decorative fruit. Pop one in a fruit bowl and that assortment becomes infinitely more interesting. Once peeled, you can really unlock the Pineapple’s potential. Core it and slice it into rings, spears or chunks. Serve those assorted shapes and sizes alone, in a fruit salad, blended with yogurt, or in a smoothie. And pineapple is one of those fruits that’s delicious cooked. Go ahead and pop those pineapple pieces on your grill or under the broiler. Add a little Chile Lime Seasoning when they come off the grill for a heightened eating experience. And of course, you can add them to pizza – add some Canadian bacon and, voilà – a plain cheese pie transforms to the curiously-named Hawaiian ‘za.
