Superstore currently has pineapples on sale for $1.97 each, but buy two and get them for only $1 each! $1.97 each is already an amazing price for fresh pineapple… $1 makes them a steal!

Pineapples freeze very well and you can use them for various juices and recipes. Or even slice them up and thrown them on a grill Brazilian BBQ style.

Here’s a recipe for our favorite Dim Sum dessert… Pineapple Buns!
