Better Home Cooking Basics: #62 Choose Pineapples that Smell Sweet & Have Firm Green Leaves

I love pineapples. Recently I’ve been juicing them. I love it by itself or mixed with other fruits & veggies. I like it in fruity salsas & on the grill too.  Before I juice or chop the pineapple I have to pick the best one I can find at the super market. My go-to tip is to smell it before I buy it. If the pineapple smells sweet it’s most likely because it is. Pineapples that smell sweet are the ones that I take home with me. I also check for bright green, firm leaves which are a telltale sign that the pineapple is fresh.
