Few fruits are as iconic as the pineapple. The universal symbol of hospitality, the prickly tropical fruit hides a sweet, juicy flesh that can instantly transport you to a tropical beach. It’s the perfect base for refreshing, sweet-meets-tart salsas and bright sauces to serve with meats. But it’s also excellent in desserts: Adding pineapple to cakes adds a little fruity sweetness and just the right amount of moisture. We particularly love making a pineapple jam to sandwich between two cookie shells for the ultimate tea cookies. And last but not least, don’t forget cocktails. A staple for bartenders, pineapple juice hearkens to the early days of booze trading and adds flair to a bevy of tropical cocktails, namely tiki classics. From pineapple cakes to salsas to tropical cocktails, we’ve rounded up our favorite pineapple recipes here.
