Avocado and Pineapple
Do you remember my fruit platter from New Year’s Eve? We had 13 different kinds of fruits and it took us over a week to eat all of them. Of course I didn’t buy just one apple or one orange. I bought a bag of each. Except for some of the fruits. The kiwi, I only bought two; avocado, three; and one each of the watermelon, cantaloupe and the pineapple.
This is how I prepare our avocados. First I slice it in half. I take the pit out with either a spoon or a knife. I scoop the flesh out with a spoon.
I add sugar, milk and ice cubes. It’s good.
We don’t buy this often though. It’s not cheap. This was $1.28 each on New Year’s Eve.
Another fruit we seldom buy is the pineapple. We only started seeing pineapples in the supermarket here about five years ago. Before that, the only pineapples my children knew were the canned ones. On New Year’s Eve, I bought only a small one. This was just as tall as my hand, not including the leafy top.
First thing I do is cut the top off. Then I cut off the skin like this.
I make diagonal slits to cut the eyes.
Then I slice them. I dip them in salt even if they are sweet.
