I am obsessed with pineapples lately. Absolutely obsessed. I have been eating pineapples and drinking pineapple juice every day. Every day. Why? Who knows?
Here is some great information about this great for you food: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=34
Ohh la la… Look at this pineapple recipe! http://www.thisgirlwalksintoabar.com/2013/06/pineapple-mojito-cocktail-recipe/“>
I’ve always heard that pineapple is traditionally used as a welcome symbol. I found several histories of how this came about, but feel I need to dig a little deeper, as several histories claim that the symbol for hospitality may have been the pinecone, not the pineapple.
I don’t know about you, but I would much rather my guests bring pineapples as a hostess gift. I would much rather serve sweet pineapple to my guests than have them lick a pinecone!
Back to my pineapple dessert! Plain old pineapple, right off the tree to my grocer to me. Sweet!
