|They're not big, but they sure are pretty!|
|Cut off the crown, and save it!|
|Trim the sides...|
|...then halve lengthwise and slice.|
And I got to have the rest of it with my lunch. Mmmmmm! Jealous? You should be. It tasted amazing!
If you live where it's warm enough, you can grow your own delicious pineapple. All you need is the crown from a store-bought pineapple and a little patience. (That's what we used.) It takes about two years in the right conditions (warm, sunny, humid) to get a fruit. But while you're waiting for the fruit to grow, the pineapple plant is a damn fine looking plant in my opinion. Sharp and pointy though, so be sure to plant it where you won't bump into it often (ouch!), or in a big pot you can move.
