Looking for tips on how to tell if a pineapple is ripe yet?
Thanks in advance.
If you can easily pull a spikey looking "leaf" out of the center of bunch at the top, its ripe.
Just hold the body of the pineapple close to your nose. If it smells like sweet ripe pineapple, it is ready to eat.
Right... When they're golden/yellow, not green... and they're fragrant...
The easy way to eat it is
cut off the top and bottom
cut in half lengthwise
cut each half into three pieces also lengthwise
cut the pineapple off the spiky rind
cut the long piece along its length into triangles-munch.
True, they don't continue to ripen after being picked. However some are picked before their time, and are not ripe at the store.
Try grilled fresh pineapple slices with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Yum
I think what I was trying to convey is don't buy one and think it will ripen, it will only rot.
Thanks for the help found 2 good pieapples and i am going to grill them to go along with my BBQ ribs ,corn on the cobb, salad, and acorn squash.
OOhh dont forget several Lowenbrau brewskies to wash it all down...
LIFE IS GOOD!!!;f
As redneck as this sounds...try Spam Kabobs...
Cut a can of Spam (we use the low-er sodium) into 1" cubes and alternate the spam cubes with chunks of canned pineapple. Reserve the juice from the pineapple and mix it with the barbecue sauce of your choice (we use Cattleman's). Put the kabobs on the grill and baste with the bbq pineapple sauce until done to your liking.
This is really good, espeically the combination of salt/sweet form the spam and pineapple.
