Thailand is home to the world's most delicious pineapples: Phu lae and Phuket.
You can buy them from the side of the street- giant pieces, peeled and sliced, for ten baht each (~30 cents).
I could eat them every day. Sometimes I do! There are over two dozen other varieties of pineapples grown in Thailand, but these are so delicious, I have never had much use for them.
So with these tangy slices of heaven available on practically every corner, I don't understand how anyone could come home from the market with two kilos of glassy pineapple, instead! (cough, cough.. Whim ...cough!)
I froze it for smoothies, but then yesterday -struck by sudden genuis- I blended some up into "ice cream" using the grinder attachment instead, and it was amazing!
I made another batch this morning with (fresh, unfrozen) mangosteen. What did the kids think?
I'll let the picture speak for itself.
