Pineapple, of the store-bought variety

Pineapple from an Okinawan grocery store:
You would think that this image says it all . . .

. . . and it does. But not quite. This piece of machine-wrought (FRESH) pineapple architechture came in a vacuumed, air-sealed plastic bag. It was labeled with a date and the price of 498 JPY (~$5.50 USD). I was tempted to build an athenaeum out of it.

I know it's the middle of winter,
but this pineapple was delicious.


  1. I bought one the other day too, and used it as a substitute for mango in a stir fry recipe I had, and ate the rest plain. Fabulous.

  2. Yessss.. my new favorite blog! =]
