I had never eaten a fresh pineapple I bought fresh from the farmer & cut myself.
That's why I got as playful as a kid.
The relatively small pineapple is so sweet and juicy that I could not have it all at one time.
I didn't have a refrigerator in my lodge room so I band-aided it with a shopping bag to it's cut and placed it on the towel hanging bar.
In the humid heat of August monsoonin kerala, a heaven for bacteria, it still lasted a day.
I had to figure out how to peel it. I tried the Ginger peeling technique I learned from a Vietnameese woman but it chopped off parts of the fruit flesh as well. I eventually cut it as they cut Shawarma off a revolving grill.
It costs about Rs.50 (about $1) at a fruit shop or Rs.30 from a farmer selling off his three wheelerApe vehicle on the street margins.
