Chef Tips

If you want to use a fresh pineapple, it’s easy to freeze.
Here’s how:

Peel the pineapple, quarter it and core it. Slice the quarters 1” thick, then cut the slices up into chunks.

Spread the pineapple chunks onto a cookie sheet in a single layer. Place in the freezer until the chunks are frozen solid.

Bag them in quart Ziplock freezer bags and return to the freezer to store for a rainy, or sunny, day.
