Eating fruits and veggies when they are “in season”, or when they are naturally ready based on the time of the year, is the when they are most cost effective and when they reach their full flavor! The USA grown pineapples usually come from the Hawaiian islands or Puerto Rico, but the largest worldwide producer of pineapples in Costa Rica. They grow on large plantations, and get picked and shipped around the world.
Pineapples are in season in the USA during April and May, and they are a delicious source of vitamin C, vitamin B-6, Magnesium, Calcium, and vitamin A. What a powerful fruit!
Candi and her team at Create Better Health Utah have one of Captain Create’s favorite pineapple recipes here: link to Sweet and Sour Chicken!
Have you ever cut up a pineapple? Adults will need to help, since they are big and have a tough skin.
