It’s been some time since I took I lunch to work, but when I did, there were two distinct categories – very interesting leftovers, or something plainer than plain that I would finish preparing during lunch. There was never a sandwich, apple and bag of chips. One day, I grabbed a fresh pineapple from the kitchen counter knowing that I would find a cutting board and knife in the church kitchen – very dull knives in the church kitchen, but that’s another story.
When I started to carve the pineapple at the table, I was very surprised to have my friends who were part of the lunch bunch that day ask me to explain the process as I was doing it. My next post involves a fresh pineapple, so their request inspired me to include a few pictures here.
|The first thing to do is slice horizontally through the pineapple removing the top and the bottom|
|The second step is to remove the peel. I try to follow the shape of the fruit and slice just inside the “eyes.”|
What’s your favorite way to use fresh pineapple? I just tried making a Dole-Whip knockoff that reminded me of the high end Italian ices I’ve had from Lulu’s Italian Ice at Phoenix Public Market.
