    *When buying canned pineapple, opt for the juice-packed type; pineapple packed in heavy syrup has lots of added sugar and about 150 kilojoules more per serving.
    *Fresh pineapple can be used as a meat tenderiser as it contains an enzyme, bromelain, that breaks down protein. Bromelain is used to make commercial meat tenderisers.

    Kind of like pineapple crumble but the amaretti biscuits add a different flavour and texture. Good pineapple season food!  -  24 Jan 2009
