Pineapple chow after growing a pineapple for two years in Trinidad and Tobago for Sweet TnT Magazine.

Pineapple Chow after a two-year wait

We at Sweet TnT Magazine believe that homemade is the best made so we planted the crown of a ripe pineapple expecting that we would be eating Pineapple Chow in no time. What followed was the longest run up to this delicious food recipe. After two long years, the homemade organic Pineapple Chow was finally complete.

Respect for pineapple farmers

We can say it was worth the wait because it tasted sweeter than any pineapple that we had tasted in our lives. Also, it gave a healthy respect of what it took a farmer to get pineapples from his farm to the market.

Below is a simple and tasty recipe for Pineapple Chow, but the next time you go to the supermarket or green grocer, remember it took two years of love and hard work to get that pineapple to you. Bon appetite.

Estimated preparation time: 20 minutes

Serving: 12
