Fresh Pineapple Recipes

These fresh pineapple recipes are a great way to add more fresh pineapple to your days!

Can I use fresh or canned pineapple?

Yes, it’s up to you! You can choose to use fresh pineapple, but canned pineapple works as well! Choose what you like and what is the most cost-effective.

Can I use frozen pineapple?

For some of these recipes, you might be apple to use frozen pineapple, but fresh is best for a lot of them.

Fresh pineapple just has such a flavor and is so tender and sweet! Sometimes frozen fruit loses a bit of its flavor once it’s been frozen too long.

How long does pineapple stay good for?

Fresh pineapple actually stays good for up to 5 days. You’ll notice that it’s starting to go bad by the coloring and look of it.

The best way to keep it as fresh as possible for as long as possible is to store it in an airtight container and keep it stored in the fridge.

I think I love pineapple more the older I get. I have never come across a page of pineapple recipes and ideas in one place. Really great post, thank you for putting it together. I have been inspired. More pineapple in receipts is a great way to celebrate the summer.
