Pineapple is available in a wide variety of ways to include fresh pineapple, canned pineapple, pineapple juice and dried pineapple. Pineapple juice is excellent when it is used as a marinade in recipes. In fact, the bromelain enzyme in pineapple is so strong in breaking down tissue that those who work with the fresh fruit in the fields and the canneries must wear gloves to help protect their skin. The pineapple juice not only tenderizes tough meats in marinade recipes but also adds a taste of the tropics to recipes. The same bromelain enzyme in fresh pineapple will also cause gelatins to fail to firm up and dairy products to separate. Cooking with pineapple helps to nullify the enzyme, so you want to use canned instead of fresh pineapple in your gelatin mold recipes. Some chefs advise to slice off the green leafy top of a pineapple and standing the pineapple upside-down on the cut end for half an hour. This food idea lets the sweeter juices on the bottom of the pineapple travel to permeate the rest of the fruit for an overall sweeter end product. The tough core of a pineapple that is usually discarded or pressed for juice can also be sliced lengthwise and used as a stir stick for fruit drinks. You can also hollow out pineapples for use as boats which make a lovely edible presentation for cold salads or vegetable recipes. One of the most popular pineapple cake recipes is the pineapple upside down cake. Pineapple also works well in savory dish recipes and marries well with pork or seafood. Sweet and sour recipes also often use pineapple chunks or juice.
There are a few tips when it comes to choosing fresh pineapples. Fresh ripe pineapples should have nice green, fresh-looking leaves in a small, compact crown, and a pineapple leaf should be easy to remove if fully ripe. The pineapple fruit should be plump, feel heavy and also have a strong sweet, but not fermented, pineapple aroma. The coloring of a fresh pineapple may be green or yellow-gold, depending on the variety. You want to feel the bottom of pineapple; it should yield to medium pressure, and have no indication of mold. A fresh pineapple should have eyes that are bright, shiny and flat. Avoid any pineapples that are dry or look old and wrinkly. Pineapples that have dark eyes, soft spots, and yellowed leaves are all indicators that the fruit is way past its prime.
