A Recipe for Yummy Pineapple

When we were in Hawaii last fall, one of our tour bus drivers told us how to prepare a pineapple before eating it. It works like a charm every time. I have bought pineapples before for the kids because they are so unusual looking. Every time I would cut into one, I would be disappointed. It would have a tart taste. Now, every piece is so sweet and juicy. Here is what you need to do.
Pick a pineapple at the grocery store. I have no idea how to chose one. Smell it? Color? I am not sure any of that matters once you do the next step. I pick a big one....my family has it gone in 2 days usually.
Here is an important step: use 2 dish towels and twist the top of the pineapple off. Do not chop the top off from the base. Just twist.
Important step #2- Turn the pineapple upside down for 2 days on a plate or in a bowl. Leave it out on your counter top. All the sugar in the bottom of the pineapple will drain to the top. It will be sweet with every bite. Mm mm.

Kara, you're a genius! I've had the same disappointing experience with pineapples and had resolved to stick to the canned version because it was "just as good". I'm going to give the fresh version one more try! Thanks, and have a fun and safe 4th!
