I love pineapples but I'm always too lazy to cut it. My husband likes to buy a pineapple for prayers every two weeks. When it gets over-ripe, I would usually throw it away. Sometimes, I would give it to my workers. If my mum is around, she would cut it and put the pieces in the fridge. She loves pineapple too. But I don't eat as I don't like plain fresh pineapple. I prefer it with sauce as in rojak.
Recently, I visited Kay's blog about cutting a pineapple. Her method was so easy so this morning I made it a point to cut my pineapple..
here's a big ripe pineapple
cut off the crown and the base
cut it into 4 pieces
peeled the skin away
sliced off the cores too
cut them into pieces
I just stir-fried some of them with garlic, prawns and Maggi chilli sauce.
I practically finished the whole plate with some rice.
The rest of the freshly cut pineapple pieces were given to my worker.
Pineapple fruit contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain that digests food by breaking down protein. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting and anti-cancer properties. Studies have shown that consumption of pineapple regularly helps fight against arthritis, indigestion and worm infestation.
