Our last customer who ordered pineapples from Hawaii raved about how sweet the pineapples we sent him were, he told me it had something to do with how close we are to the equator line. I don't know if that is true, but I do agree that Hawaiian pineapples taste sweet and wonderful.
With winter coming soon, fresh tropical fruit from Hawaii would be a welcome treat to warm up anyone's tummy, and with this Hawaiian pupus recipe for Pineapple Pepper Dip, there is plenty of pineapple flavor to go around for everyone.
I came across this delicious sounding Hawaiian pineapple recipe for Pineapple Pepper Dip in a recent magazine. It is a great pupu recipe to stretch and share your exotic pineapples at your next party or special occasion. Half a pineapple is enough to make 3 cups of dip, but you could easily use the whole pineapple and double the recipe if you are entertaining a larger party of friends, family, or business associates.
Having delicious and memorable Hawaiian pupus or appetizers helps to make any special event that much more special. If you are planning a special event in the near future, keep this pineapple recipe in mind.
