The other night my husband and I polished off an entire fresh pineapple for dessert. It was sweet, juicy, citrusy and ten thousand times more addictive than even the best bowl of popcorn. Before we even knew it our toothpicks were digging into an empty bowl and we were looking at each other with puppy dog eyes thinking, no more?
I suppose this is to be expected given pineapples are in peak season. I have to admit while I’d been busy filling my winter citrus basket with clementines, navel oranges and tangerines, I’d been remiss at including our tropical friend the pineapple. They finally caught my eye when they went on sale at Fairway the other week and I scooped one up. Three days later I was back scooping up another. And then another. At which point I knew I had to get creative and make use of this incredibly delicious peak season pineapple in a savory dish.
