It is addicting! This is hands down the most popular product at my parties / cooking classes. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who doesn’t like it.
It is extremely sweet and makes for a great snack. Since is has the same nutrition as fresh pineapple, it makes for a very healthy way to satisfy that sweet tooth!
You may wonder what it looks like dry. It is very different from dehydrated pineapple. Remember, this is 100% pineapple with no additives / preservatives. It looks just like fresh pineapple, but without the water:
How to Hydrate it:
I don’t use it hydrated very often, but here are a few tips:
- Don’t use too much water, or you will dilute the flavor.
- The tops (smaller end) are the hardest part (take the longest) to hydrate. I use just a enough hot water to cover those “tops” and then turn the pineapple over half way through:
- It will likely take 30+ minutes to fully hydrate your pineapple.
- Let them dry for just a minute on a paper towel once hydrated so they aren’t to “soggy.”
And just to emphasize, freeze dried pineapple is not at ALL like canned pineapple. Canned pineapple tends to have almost a bit of a sour taste. This freeze dried pineapple is super sweet and the texture is fantastic! Just look at the difference:
