There was a Farmer’s Market near my husband’s job. Several times a week he would go there to buy fresh vegetables and fruits. Some days he would bring home sweet pineapples. When you sliced and eat them they tasted delicious. They were very sweet.
After the pineapple was sliced, we would eat some chunks and put the rest in the refrigerator. The next day the pineapple would be sweeter. You do not need to put any sugar if the pineapple is ripe.
My moms’ parents had a farm and on the farm they grew: plantain, bananas, pineapples, oranges and tobacco. When my mom was a kid she ate one entire small pineapple a day when they were ripe. Her dad would bring a machete and would slice the pineapple in half. He would then cut and trash the pineapple core and finally, he would give her a spoon to eat it directly from the nature’s container. I thought that was very cool.
