Ingredients

  • 1 fresh pineapple
  • 4 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 handful fresh mint

Directions

Core the pineapple and cut it into quarters. Slice the quarters as thinly as possible.

Arrange the slices on a plate in 1 or 2 layers.

Put the sugar and mint leaves in a mortar. Using a pestle, crush them until the sugar becomes light green and the mint smells really fragrant.

Sprinkle the mint sugar over the pineapple, and serve.

Pineapple Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Pineapple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
