Spring & Summer in our house means pineapples….yummo! I have fond memories of road trips to the beach which always included a stop at a roadside stall to pick up fresh pineapples. These sweet treats originated in South America & were named by early European explorers who thought it kinda looked like a pinecone. Hmm, I guess – if you squint & maybe tilt your head.
There are loads of reasons to love a pineapple. Need more? They are rich in loads of vitamins & minerals – especially Vitamin C & manganese. Plus, they are rich in antioxidants; they also contain the digestive enzyme, bromelain; & is an anti-inflammatory.
I often just serve pineapple with mint, but I discovered this at the end of last year. It may be a new fav.
