Poor Pat. We just can't seem to get away from the subject of pineapple.
Idaho, I share your curiosity as to why our tastes seem to change throughout our lifetime. Cotton candy as a kid was wonderful. Now, as an adult, the idea of it seems horrendous and gives me stomach pains.
Thanks Felaine. SLC blues is good.
I knew SLC was the Prozac capitol, but didn't know about Mormon Jell-O.
Mormon Jell-O: Lime gelatine, ground (canned) pineapple, and cottage cheese. SLC is the green Jell-O (and Prozac) capital of the world. Srsly.
I loved pineapple when I was young, especially ground-up and mixed with cottage cheese. In my old age, I don't care for it as much. It's still fairly good, but not enough that I want it more than once a year.
I'm not sure why tastes change, but it would be interesting to find out.
I love pineapple, especially with ham. I really like Hawaiian pizzas.
A pineapple company on Maui hired me to negotiate a dispute between the management and labor. There was a big strike going on, lots of anger brewing creating a situation that could quickly get out of hand. So, I led a group of management and labor through the process of dispute resolution. A very long story cut short, we did settle the dispute, management and labor came to a mutually agreed upon solution, and paid me handsomely.
I bought a six-pack of pineapples at the airport. When I got home and opened the box, the pineapples were packed in manure. The company name on the box was a different one than the one that hired me. The point is, unhappy labor has many options when fighting management. Who, in their right mind, would buy another box from that company? Who wins? Who pays?
Clearly, neither management or labor wins. If customers don't buy that brand, the company loses customers, the workers lose jobs. No one wins, the customers throw away the boxes of manured pineapples and vows to never buy from that company again and tell their friends. This strategy is one of sabotage.
In order to get a win/win solution, both management and labor must have a resolution that satisfies both.
Now, back to food, my favorite cake of all is pineapple upside down cake made in a cast iron skillet.
Carl, I like your peep shows, especially the second one.
I've never had pineapple on ham, but will try it if someone else makes it.
FA, you can have the pineapple. However, I will say this. If my mom had made ham that looked like that, i would have been highly tempted to try it.
Enjoyed reading all the comments regarding Easter traditions.
I watched a Food Channel "Unwrapped" show last night which featured a company that smokes ham, and others that makes chocolate bunnies, Peeps, jelly beans, and several other sweet things. Oh, and green beans--from Americus, Georgia of all places! It grossed me out--the production of processed food.
Sk8eycat, I have to admit, I've never before heard Peeps being referred to as sleazy! lol
Unless, of course.........
