Pineapple: The Comeback Kid!

Millennials are always on the hunt for the next food trend and recent findings reveal avocados are out and pineapples are in.

According to Tesco, demand for pineapple is accelerating, with sales increasing by around 15% in the last year. In fact, pineapples are now the fastest growing fruit in the UK and it’s no wonder pineapples are proving so popular.

They are delicious, full of nutrients and odds are, you already have them in your cupboard. Not only is canned pineapple good for your wallet but it’s good for your health and packs a punch in flavour!

Today I have a tasty Thai Prawn And Pineapple Curry recipe to share with you.
