We know it's hard to cook with pineapple. Once you've got a beautifully ripe and wonderfully golden one in front of you, all chopped and prepped, the only thing you really want to do with it is eat it. Right away. But if you can practice a little self restraint you'll see that you can make some pretty great dishes out of this tropical fruit.
