pinya: prutas na marami ang mata

one fruit that i like but doesn’t sit well with my tummy is pineapples.

this fruit is fascinating. it’s got a very interesting look, presents really well (did your folks use to cut this in a spiral pattern to cut the “eyes” off?), and is very versatile — can be eaten fresh, as a juice, as a vegetable (in salads), in soups (like tom yum and sinigang sa pinya, which i haven’t tried yet), in savory dishes (piniyahang manok, pizza topping), and of course, as a desert ingredient (in ice cream, candies and cakes).

but i like them best fresh. with a sprinkling of salt.

    wow, atche, i've never tried that either. not consciously anyway. when i think about fruits with cottage cheese, it's apples, melon, cantaloupe. hmm, i'll check that pairing out 🙂

    oh and yes, BB, my ingkong definitely used the spiral pattern to get the eyes out.
