I had a large pineapple that had become nicely ripe. I had something in mind for it, but by the time it was ready, I couldn't remember what this was! So I simply chopped it up and added some spices. It tasted really yummy the next morning!

Method

  • Chop the pineapple up into 1cm cubes. Simply slice it into rings, remove the skin from each ring, and then dice it up. Put the chunks into a large flat casserole dish.
  • Drizzle over with the juice from the lemon.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon over it.
  • Grind the cloves as finely as you can.
  • Mince the ginger to make 1t minced ginger. You can use the seed grinder for this too.
  • Mix everything together so that the pineapple chunks are covered with lemon juice and spices.
  • Allow the flavours to develop. Just leave it in the fridge overnight for the flavours to develop. It will taste great the next day.

Serve

  • Serve in small bowls. Decorate with something red for example a strawberry or cherry if you have one.

Afterwards

  • Clean the seed grinder.
  • Recycle the waste.
