Lovely Dried Pineapple Flowers

Lovely Dried Pineapple Flowers

I had never seen these dried pineapple flowers since a couple of weeks ago. Guess what? I fell in love with them.

I am Brazilian and so I am pretty confident with this fruit, so confident that often I don’t like the ones that are sold here in Italy, as they are too acid. But this super easy recipe of dried pineapple flowers suits for all pineapple qualities and may be the solution when you buy a bitter one.

You just have to peel it – eliminate the big leaves and then cut the hard peel with a serrated knife, cutting it a little thick so you eliminate also the “knots”. I saw this recipe on the Italian blog Trattoria da Martina as a decoration for cupcakes.

Then cut it in slices the thinnest as possible. Place the slices on an oven sheet covered with parchment paper and bake it. As soon as you take the slices out of the oven, if you want them curved, put them into a muffin mold to cool down. Otherwise leave them flat.

You can use the dried pineapple flowers (don’t they look like flowers?) to decorate pies, cupcakes…or just to eat it as it is. They are simply delicious! Other than being a super healthy snack, as it contains no sugar or other ingredients, just fruit.
