Fresh pineapple is so good.
I did not realize how good fresh pineapple was until I was an adult. Growing up I never remember eating fresh pineapple. We always ate canned pineapple. It was cheap and readily available, so that is what we ate.
I am not sure exactly when I had my first fresh pineapple, but once I had it, canned pineapple was never the same again. Fresh pineapple is so much better.
We eat pineapple just about anytime, but one of our favorite ways to eat it is with Mexican food.
My friend who has given me several of my favorite Mexican recipes, like my enchilada sauce and my Huevos Rancheros, serves pineapple with Mexican type food all the time. She has served it this way several times when we have eaten at her house, and we really enjoyed it.
So often with Mexican food, it is hard to know what vegetable or side dish to serve. I have found that pineapple is almost always good served with it. The flavors go together really well.
Do you like fresh pineapple? How do you serve it?
