Last weekend I went to the market to buy groceries for cooking over the weekend lunch and dinner. I stumbled upon a stall selling “honey” pineapple. I bought one which is about 2 kg. Wow!! aren’t they delicious???
This is the pineapple I bought….so delicious!!!
Pineapple is a remarkable fruit. The fruit is not only enjoyable to eat because of its lush, sweet and exotic flavour, but it may also be one of the most healthful foods available today. If we take a more detailed look at it, we will find that pineapple is valuable for easing indigestion, arthritis or sinusitis. The juice helps to get rid of intestinal worms.
I’m always interested to look at how pineapple affects other conditions of our body system.
Pineapple is high in manganese, a mineral that is critical to development of strong bones and connective tissue. A cup of fresh pineapple will give you nearly 75% of the recommended daily amount. It is particularly helpful to older adults, whose bones tend to become brittle with age.
Because of my passion in gardening I also break off the top portion of the fruit or some called it the “crown” and wrapped the bottom with some wet tissue and newsprint papers. I sprinkled the papers sparingly every alternate mornings to make sure they remain fresh. I plan to grow them ( there are 2 stalks) on the ground of my home when I go back to Subang Bestari. Don’t know yet whether the soil in our area are suitable….
