There is nothing like making and eating fresh pineapple recipes.

The pineapple must be one of the most exciting fruits, as it's almost regal in appearance with its plush crown of leaves on top of the cone.
Because this fruit was eaten in past centuries by wealthy people, it is sometimes used even today as a display of welcome on gate posts. But the pineapple comes into its own as a spectacular table decoration.

In our second recipe we are using the pineapple shells as bowls which will impress any guest.

Fresh pineapple recipes allow us to realise that there is no comparison between the taste of fresh and tinned pineapples.
