Cutting a Pineapple
One way to save pineapple for snacking is to sprinkle the slices lightly with a little salt - don't overdo it! This is a much healthier snack for most people, than chips, etc.
Fresh pineapple can be used in any dishes which call for canned, except items that contain gelatin. While canned works fine in gelled dishes, fresh pineapple will cause it not to set!
