4 Pineapple Recipes: Fruity Savoury Mixes for Finest Dinner 2022


The West Indies were already engaged in pineapple cultivation long before Christopher Columbus “discovered” the fruit. Indians in tropical America referred to the pineapple as na-na, which means “fragrance,” while Spanish explorers called it pina because of its similarity to a pine cone in appearance. The pineapple is native to tropical America. After some time, it made its way to the Hawaiian Islands, which are now the most important producers of this fruit.

There are four distinct varieties of pineapples, including the Sugar Loaf, Gold, Red Spanish, and Cayenne smooth. The Gold variety has a flavor that is more intensely sweet, a golden color, and a higher concentration of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that is great for the immune system, and there is a lot of vitamin C in the pineapple. It is wonderful for those who suffer from poor digestion and constipation. Pineapple can be included in elimination diets due to its ability to facilitate the digestion of proteins. Additionally, an alkaline ash is left behind in the body by it.

Pineapples can be grown in a number of different regions across the globe; however, the United States gets the majority of their pineapples from Cuba, Mexico, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. You can get them at any time of the year, but the months of April through July are the busiest for finding them. June and July are the busiest months of the year.

Choose pineapples that have a pleasant and fragrant aroma. Pick pineapples that have been flown in directly from Hawaii or Central America if at all possible; this will ensure that you get the freshest fruit possible. Steer clear of pineapples that smell sour or fermented when you can. If you have difficulty removing even one of the leaves from the top of the fruit, it is not yet ready to be picked.
