Simple Tip: Store Your Pineapples Upside Down

Pineapple happens to be one of my absolute favorite fruits. Yesterday they were on sale at my local Whole Foods (2 for $6) and I decided to grab a pair. When I got to the checkout counter, the gal asked if I would like her to remove the tops for me. I said yes and watched as she gave the leafy bit a firm twist.

Once the leaves had been popped off, she told me an amazing tip: she suggested I store the pineapple upside down. This helps the sweet juice that has accumulated on the bottom during shipping, flow back to the other end.

I've often wondered why one side of the pineapple is sweeter than the other, and it looks like I finally discovered why! So tell me, did you know this trick already and do you think it works?

The same tip works for tomatoes. You can get a couple days of counter life out of them by tipping them.

lol i don't know if that's a legitimate tip. remember that pineapples grow in the one direction, so it's not like anything sinks to the bottom....

Neat - I never knew that. I just recently found out that the top of a pineapple could be twisted off and now I think it's the coolest thing (but I'm easily amused).
