Art's wonderful cousin often brings super sweet Hawaiian grown Dole pineapples for us. We love it! It's usually sweeter than sweet in summer. In winter, it tends to be a bit more tart but I love to use it in my smoothies. My mom insisted the other day that I need to turn the pineapple upside down to let the sugar run down to the top of the pineapple. Sounded like an old wives tale to me but then my neighbor told me the exact same thing and added that I should put it in sunlight. So I did.
Is it sweeter? I don't know because I didn't taste it before I cut it but it was not bad for a winter pineapple.
OK, before anybody tries this I must tell you that mom also insists that when I cut the ends off of cucumbers I need to rub the ends with the part I cut off to somehow suck all the bitterness away from the rest of the cucumber. I've told her time and again that it doesn't make sense but she insists!
