So if you want to learn how to make some challenging dishes, like piecrusts from lard and flour, an Amish cookbook is not a bad place to get some help.
Pineapples are a deeply southern fruit, not even available in North America. Pineapples grow in South America and Africa. They can travel far distances to market because the fruit does not continue to ripen once it is harvested. The plant and its leaves are also used in some cultures, or were in the past, to make clothing and other textiles, even wallpaper. Pineapple is the second most favorite fruit of all tropical fruits behind bananas.
Pineapples are sweet, tangy, and exceptionally juicy. They can be used for both savory and sweet dishes, and can be chopped, blended, chunked, or crushed or prepared in almost any other way that appeals to you. They are loaded with vitamin C as well as manganese and thiamin. They are also a good source of fiber, and some people think that eating pineapple improves their digestion, although there is no specific research on this claim. Regardless, though, pineapples are a dish that delights everyone because of its unusual outer skin, beautiful yellow inner flesh, and wonderfully sweet flavor.
This recipe blends fresh pineapple and whipped cream, an extraordinary complement of flavors. You can make a home made pie crust to pile in the fruit and cream, or buy something like a graham or chocolate or vanilla crust from the local grocery store to complete this dish. Any way you prepare it, pineapple pie is sure to be a hit at home.
