Doesn’t that pineapple look good? We named it Gus. Guster. Gurton Buster.
I’m not an expert at picking a ripe pineapple, but I’ve heard that they should not be all green. The yellow color shows ripeness. See how Gus is more yellow towards the bottom? This pineapple was perfect. Sweet and juicy.
I do admit though, that most recipes I have that use pineapple, use canned instead of fresh. Here are a few of my recipes using pineapple:
- Aunt Gerry’s Pineapple Cookies
- Ham and Pineapple Fried Rice
- Tropical Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa and Coconut Rice
- Caramel Pineapples

Looks as though there are some delicious recipes linked up. Today I bring Pina Colada Macadamia Oatmeal Cookies, my take on my mother’s Pineapple Cookie recipe. Thanks for hosting each week and for the nice shout out regarding the Chex Croutons I posted last week. Have a great one.
One of my favorite meals is grilled Hawaiian chicken (#53), tropical salad (#54), and regular or coconut rice. Delicious!!
Can’t wait to try some of the recipes linked up here today! They all make me think of summer. 🙂
Ha! I just realized #20 is the same salad that I posted, both found at allrecipes. I guess two links for the same salad just proves how yummy it is. 🙂
Yummy! I recently learned a trick that works….a day or 2 before you cut your pineapple turn it upside and let it sit like that. I did that with my last 2 pineapples and they were the best I ever had 🙂
Lovely shot of “Gus”, we are (BIG Pysch fans here) and I choose a pineapple by what you said AND by #1 pulling on the leaves….if one come out too easy it’s over ripe…won’t come out- not near being ripe at all. #2 Smell the bottom…if it smells like pineapple, it’s ready to be eaten! 😉
Also the Pineapple corer is an AWESOME tool!
Tracy, great tip about the leaves! And that photo was taken on manual, thanks to an awesome photography teacher I know 😉
