A Sentiment of Friendship: Grilled Pineapple
The pineapple, with its stately shape and happy colors, is a symbol of welcome and friendliness. In the early American colonies it was rare and exotic, so it became the image of hospitality, often adorning the top of displays or fancy desserts. Some New England sailors even put it outside their door as a sign of safe return. It is a delicious addition to any meal. To echo the sentiment of friendship and warmth, I want to share a special recipe - grilled pineapple. This unique and scrumptious treat is a family favorite and perfect for summer. We hope you enjoy it!
