any ideas?
OH said could i make a pineapplebread/cake?
soi did. it was very moist, and not very
they were only 50 each in tescos so i bought a couple.

so any other ideas that i could use them for?

A nice summery dessert:

Peel and de-eye your pineapple and then chill (or you can stick it in the freezer for about 20 mins) and then slice as finely as you can into rounds, laying the slices flat on a large platter.

Make up a sugar syrup in which you have put a sprig of mint leaves and allow to cool - take the sprig of leaves out when cold so you get maximum flavour transferrence into the syrup.

Then, finely shred some fresh mint leaves and finely dice some red chilli - put both of these into the cooled syrup and mix, then pour over your plate of pineapple slices.  Chill and then serve either on it's own or with a coconut ice cream.  Very refreshing for this warm weather we're having.

I do something similar but just pound some mint leaves and sugar together then sprinkle over the very thinly sliced pineapple.

The diced red chilli adds a little something extra - takes away some of the sweetness  

will be giving that a go definitely - I have a pineapple in the fridge
