Pineapple-Tips, Tricks and Recipes

Isn't it fun getting pineapple in our baskets in January? It feels so summery.One more reason to love Bountiful Baskets! As if we needed one.

I don't know about all of you, but I never really knew how to cut a pineapple. I'm pretty good with a can opener and so canned pineapple it was.  But then I read the Pioneer Woman's tutorial on how to cut a pineapple. And guess what? It's so simple. Who knew?!?!? Well....probbaly all of YOU knew. But just in case, here is the link to her site and the simple step by step instructions. Thanks PW!

If that still seems like a chore (or you want to pretend you're in Hawaii and serve a fancy drink in your pineapple "shell,") I suggest getting one of these:

Now that we've figured out two simple ways to cut the pineapple, please try this with it: 
Oh yummy! Grilled pineapple. 
Just slice, and grill on the barbecue. If you've never had it, your missing out. 
And it's super yummy served on a hamburger as well.  
So, what's your favorite thing to do with a pineapple?
