Hands up if you love to cook with fresh pineapple! Oh that sweet goodness on your plate, the natural way to sweeten up any dish without adding sugar!
To celebrate all things food and especially pineapples, we’re excited to launch PHASE 2 of our Pure Gold Moments Giveaway.
You might recall we took a pretty memorable trip to meet the Pure Gold Pineapple farmers last month and busted a few pineapple myths while we were there. In case you missed it, here’s our top myths (and take note as you’ll need to know them!)
FACT 1: Pineapples are NOT only a summer fruit! Pineapples sold without a crown are NOT second quality, they are the PURE GOLD variety which are the PERFECT WINTER FRUIT – beautiful and sweet ALL YEAR ROUND!
FACT 2: It takes two years to grow a pineapple. YEP! From planting to harvest, you can expect to wait around 24 months for these babies to be big enough and ripe enough to eat!
FACT 3: Pineapples are ripest on the day they are picked. The farmer picks it at it’s prime so from then on the pine is only going to deteriorate. Don’t let it sit in your fruit bowl waiting for the colour to change – EAT IT NOW!
FACT 4: Once cut, pineapples will last for two weeks in an air-tight container in the fridge! That is, if they last that long! So cut them up, pop them in the fridge and dish them up to the kids next time they’re looking for something sweet to eat!
Pure Gold Pineapples are sold in ALDI, Woolworths, Coles, Harris Farm, IGA and most local green grocers.
