|Choosing a Pineapple
When choosing a pineapple, you want a ripe one. But how to tell? You can’t tell by color or by smell or by squishiness. The only dependable way I’ve found is by pulling on a single leaf. If the leaf pulls out easily, it’s ripe. If it doesn’t, keep looking. If you can pick up the pineapple with one single leaf, don’t buy it. It’s not ripe and it won’t get ripe. Since I started using this method I’ve never gotten anything but wonderfully ripe and juicy pineapples. Enjoy!
