My spicy sweet version of a Cuban sandwhich: Cuban bread (or crusty French bread) grilled pineapple sliced sweet ham grilled jalepenos peperjack cheese(or swiss) store bought sundried tomato spread Assemble the sandwhich: Put spread on both sides of bread then slices of pineapple, then generous amounts of ham, then jalepeneos, then top with cheese, then lay the top slice of bread on top. Next place sandwhich on a hot fry pan. Use another frying pan with some type of heavy weight on top to really press the sandwhich down. Cook 2-3 min on each side until cheese is melted and bread is golden brown.

Pineapple Pizza with Jalapeño Pepper Ingredients:- 1 frozen pizza pie, 1 cup of fresh pineapple chunks, 3 jalapeno pepper cut in rings, 1 cup whole food pizza sauce, 12 ounce whole food shredded mozzarella cheese, ½ tea spoon olive oil Spread the olive oil on frozen pizza pie. Spread the pizza sauce, sprinkle cheese. Arrange Pineapple chunks and Jalapeno pepper rings on top of the pizza. Bake it for 25 mins at 350 degree temperature or longer depending on the crispness you like. When cheese starts to bubble, pineapple gets little brown and pepper gets wilted take it out. Wait for couple of mins before cutting it into slices. This unique pizza has hot and sweet taste.

1/4 Cup White wine (sweeter is best) 1/3 Cup Golden Raisins 1 Tbl Sugar (or sweetener) One pinch of finely ground cayenne 1 Whole pineapple, Cleane, Cored & Cut into smallish pieces (about 1 - 1/1/2 inches max) 1 small container of blackberries (can use other berries, but blackberries hold up best) In a bowl big enough to hold everything, Soak Raisins in wine until they are plump. Add Sugar and cayenne. Stir well to dissolve the sugar (don't let the cayenne clump up). Add the pineapple and berries and gently stir to coat all fruit with liquid. (Can adjust sugar/sweetener & cayenne to taste.) Stir often as you are serving it, so that each portion gets some liquid and some raisins.

Pineapple Jalapeno Marmalade 1 fresh pineapple, skinned and diced 2 jalapenos, minced (seeded or not, depending on how much you like the heat) 2 c sugar Simmer together in saucepan until syrupy and reduced a bit, around 30 minutes. Great on fish, chicken, or even as a sauce on ice cream!

Honestly, the best summer treat is to slice the pineapple and throw it on the grill. It gets a wonderful char flavor, and the natural sugar carmalizes. Top with a little vanilla bean ice cream and you have the perfect summer dessert!

Pineapple Tea Recipe When you've used the pineapple flesh for one of these other delicious recipes, don't throw away the skin and cores! wash the skins and put them in a pot with water to cover along with the cores, simmer until the skins looks cooked thru, somewhat translucent. I usually prefer organic pineapples for this tea. If the tea is not sweet enough on it's own (depends how sweet the pinapple was) add a small amount of sweetner of your choice. Sometimes I like to add some mint leaves or coriander seeds near the end of simmering. Enjoy another use for that beautiful pinapple you bought!

Creamy Cool Pineapple Pie A great summer treat! 1.3 tablespoons of Cream cheese 2.1 Pie shell 3.3 tbl Cornstarch 4.1 quart of Pineapple, cut in chunks 5.1 cup of Sugar 6.Heavy cream and honey (for whipped topping) After pie shell has cooled, smear the bottom of the shell with the 3 tbl of cream cheese. Take half of the pineapple chunks and press them through a sieve into a mixing bowl. If this doesn’t yield 1.5 cups of liquid, add water. In a medium saucepan – mix pineapple liquid mixture, cornstarch over medium heat stirring constantly until thickened (about 7-8 minutes.) Let cool. Take the other half of the pineapples; stand them up straight in the pie shell, then poor the cooled mixture over the pineapples. Let chill for about 3 hours. If you choose, you may use homemade whipped cream on the top for serving, which is made by whipping 8 oz of heavy cream with honey (to your taste) until fluffy. This truly is a delight!

I like loose recipes you can play around with and make lots of substitutions in, so here we go: Your Favorite Pineapple Sandwich: Fresh sliced pineapple (enough to cover a slice of your favorite bread) 2 Slices of your favorite bread Your favorite deli meat, meat substitute, or leftover meat 2 slices of your favorite cheese (or enough spread or crumbles to cover one slice of bread) Your favorite sauce (as much as you want without making the bread too soggy; unless you're into that ;) ) Layer meat, pineapple, sauce, and cheese on one slice of your favorite bread; top with other slice of your favorite bread and broil until cheese melts. Three suggestions for the variable ingredients: Roast lamb with a curry sauce (Personally, I LOVE pineapple and lamb with curry.) and a creamy cheese (maybe a sheep's milk cheese for symmetry?). Chicken with buffalo sauce and mozzarella (or bleu cheese if you're a fan). Ham with honey mustard and provolone.

Smoothie: My favorite breakfast smoothie is 1 cup fresh pineapple cut in chunks, 1 banana, 2 handfuls of baby spinach and 1 cup of ice, blend in the blender. Delicious, and you get all the fruits and vegetable requirements for the day in one glass!
