For dessert, Minoo made Pineapple with Lemon and Coconut at the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen. When pineapple is in season, they are sweet, juicy and cheap. Minoo also shared with us how to select a good pineapple. Always look for bright yellowish pineapple. Do not get those with dull brownish bottom.
The Pineapple with Lemon and Coconut is refreshing and yet rich with the aromatic coconut.
