How to select pineapple

  1. Although the season for pineapple runs from March through June, they are available year-round in local markets. 
  2. Fresh ripe pineapples should have green, fresh-looking leaves in a small, compact crown, and a leaf should be easy to remove if fully ripe. 
  3. Once again, the nose proves to be a powerful tool in determining ripeness. The fruit should be plump, feel heavy and have a strong sweet, but not fermented, pineapple aroma.
  4. Colour of the fruit may be green or yellow-gold, depending on the variety. Feel the bottom. It should yield to medium pressure, have no indication of mold, and the eyes should be bright, shiny and flat. 
  5. Avoid any that are dry or look old and wrinkly. 
  6. Dark eyes, soft spots and yellowed leaves are all indicators of a pineapple way past its prime. 

How to select raisin, kismis?

  1. Like other dried fruits, raisins are available throughout the year. Most raisins are sold in boxes or packages you cannot see through so it is difficult to judge freshness by the eye. 
  2. However, most boxes can be squeezed so you can get some idea of how fresh the product is. Choose the product that submits to pressure. 
  3. Shake the box or container and avoid any that rattle loudly, an indication the raisins have dried out too much. 
  4. When buying raisins in a sealed, opaque container, make sure that the container is tightly sealed and that they are produced or packaged by a reputable company.
