Here at Jupiter, we don’t need an excuse to celebrate one of our favourite exotic fruits, the sumptuous and spiky pineapple!
One of the most versatile and healthy fruits around, the pineapple is a fantastic addition to your fruit salad recipe, eaten as a snack or even used as part of a sweet and sour sauce for freshly cooked meats.
You can even try barbequing slices of pineapple for a hot and juicy dessert.
Delicious and healthy…
Everyone’s favourite prickly customer, the pineapple is a healthy treat packed full of not only flavour, but also a fantastic array of vitamins and minerals. Pineapples are extremely rich in vitamin C and manganese which means that just one portion of pineapple per day contains around 131% of your daily recommended intake of immune boosting vitamin C.
