    I have got pineapples coming out of my ears lol! They were 2 for £2 at local fruit shop so I got some then my mum came round last night with 2 as she saw the offer and thought she would pick some up!

    4 pineapples - any suggestions? (other than filling with vodka and drinking lol!)

    How about peeling, cubing and freezing? Like you can do with grapes. Or adding to LF yogurt (vanilla flavour), blending and freezing. Could make a nice "ice cream". I am a greedy grunt when it comes to pineapples, I can eat a whole one in one sitting!

    Ok then, chop into teeny tiny pieces and mix with the yogurt, shouldn't make much difference. Where there's a will there's a way!

    A slice grilled on a barbecue is lovely - I know you're supposed to syn fruit if it's cooked, but I don't think a few minutes on the barbecue breaks it down like, say, stewing an apple would. So I never syn pineapple done this way.

    I go through so many pineapples in the hot weather as I just skin them, cut them into strips and freeze them. Well if DelMonte can charge £2 a box for 3 pieces of frozen pineapple, then I'll do it for 5 minutes work and some freezer bags and typically get at least 8 pieces of pineapple (last one i did was 12 but that was a very large pineapple). A bit messy and takes a little bit of time - but money saving and free and a useful substitute for ice lollys in the summer.
