Polynesian pineapple fest
Thirty years ago on my first visit to the Polynesian Cultural Center in Laie, Hawaii I devoured a fresh pineapple dessert that was irresistible. Ripe-picked in the morning and delivered daily from the plantation, it’s served in a hollowed half pineapple—vanilla ice cream paired with fresh crushed pineapple, juice included. In the heat of the day the ice cream would swiftly begin to melt and swirl with the pineapple juice. Yum!!!And is sticky darker can young people take viagra every hand tiny.

enjoy pineapple often enough. A little intimidated by the prep, I was unsure about the bristly top plume and the alligator resilience of the peel. When I tried to cut away the skin I’d wind up with ‘eyes’ peering back at me. Then how do you core it? And how about picking a sweet, ripe pineapple? Here are some pineapple pick and prep tips to demystify these prickly fruits. And tomorrow I’ll feature Tahitian French Toast under a fabulous fresh pineapple sauce. Enjoy it for a breakfast or brunch this Saturday.
Picking Ripe Pineapples
• Pick it for ‘yellow’—at least around the bottom and almost half way up.
• Pick it for ‘smell’—nose test it for a sweet pineapple aroma.
• Pick it for ‘pentagons’—peel has large pentagons at the top; small ones indicate it was picked too green.
• Pick it for ‘push’—gently push on the fruit, just barely gives-ripe, gives to pressure-over ripe, hard-not ripe.
Easy Pineapple Prep
1 Cut the top off and slice off the bottom.
2 Stand in a vertical position.
3 Carve the skin away from top to bottom.
4 Remove enough flesh to clean off the ‘eyes’.
5 Cut in vertical quarters.
6 Slice away the core from each piece.
7 Cut in chunks, slices or sticks.
Fresh pineapple is best eaten at room temperature.
