Pineapples and Videos

The last post on the Border Hop or Passport Shuffle was almost as involved as experiencing it! So now, how about something a lot lighter.

I’ve been interested in photography for quite a while, and I’ve also been looking forward to time to learn about videos. Moving kept me busy, I got involved with the blog, I made friends, found other interests, but I haven’t spent much time with videos. Maybe as part of getting more focused I can change that. So, my blog friends here, I hope you don’t mind if I inflict my video efforts on you as I work on this. There is nothing like doing something to get better at doing something.

I’m interested in videos about how to do things, how to find things, how to accomplish things. I think about what I wish I had seen when I was getting settled here and had so many new things to learn. One thing we do here is cut up a lot of pineapples! So, my husband and I made this in the kitchen last night. It took two pineapples before we got one that worked. They are a couple of Panama’s finest so we’re happy to work our way through the containers in the fridge.

    Muchas gracias! Not quite the way we do it but it’s whatever works for you! Have you tried planting any of the tops yet and if so how successful have you been? I’ve had to pull quite a few of mine because they went to mush and boy do they stink when they start rotting!

      I’ve planted quite a few tops and only had one rot. I found they got dug up so I just toss them out in the yard. Whoever wants to eat whatever fruit is left can do so, and then I plant the top. Less to rot, and it doesn’t get dug up. My neighbor as been at it for quite a while and has plants with decent size pineapples! How do you cut them? Do you take the rind off first?

        Yes, I pull the top off instead of cutting it. If you give it a twist it comes right out. Then I cut the rind off and cut it in fours. I take the core off like you do. My mom has a pretty neat pineapple tool that takes the core out of the center and makes rings. And you’re right, I’ve never tasted pineapple so good.

        Ahh really! I’ll have to try just pulling the top out. I tried cutting off the rind first, but find the fruit less slippery and easy to hang on to if I do that part later. But, if I have to keep practicing (and then eating them), I’ll do what I have to do 😀
