  1. I love pineapple in the summer!

  2. I'm glad it's making a comeback over there. I love pineapple!

  3. I just love pineapple. I rarely end up cooking with it though since I tend to eat quite a bit of it as I chop it up. I do love it with plain yogurt and granola for breakfast as a parfait.

  4. Hi Claire, I never knew pineapples grew in England! Okay, I know what you meant, but I couldn't help myself. I do like a nice ripe pineapple and you've shared some tasty sounding recipes. I'd never have thought to add pineapple to cheese on toast, but why not? I love it on pizza. That fruit platter looks good too.
