    Wow, that is SO cool! The pineapple building I mean! I had no idea the pineapple had such symbols….I always thought it was just a fruit! Had NO idea it was name-related to the pine cone, too…even in Malaysia? Wow, the stuff I learn from you…Thank you, keep it coming!

    I didn’t know all this neat info on pineapple! And thanks for a great cake recipe too!

  3. February 5, 2010 at 11:34 PM

    I’m in the same boat as Sophia. I never knew it had any type of history besides being a fruit and that the Philippines is a big exporter of that. See I always learn something new here every time.

    You got your pineapple up at the right time! Chinese New Year will be here soon and people love hanging or placing “pineapples” decorations in their house as a lucky symbolic. I feel like taking some pictures for you..:D

    Had no idea that pineapple had such an interesting and meaningful history behind it. I did not know that it was such a symbol of status! Wow, that’s cool. Thanks for that great recipe from Alice Waters as well, it’s a great one.

    Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits! That is wonderful information! Your posts are fantastic and interesting.

    Sophia – My pleasure, a lot of fun to explore

    Jenn – Isn’t it funny how the stories start to come together. A real global influence.

    TigerFish – Send the pics over, would love to include them!

    Natasha – I knew some of the information but still learned a lot in putting the post together, always a fun project.

    Lisa – I know, I have new respect for the pineapple =) Move over Chanel and D&G, here comes Dole.

    Erica – Thanks!

    I’m very near to pineapple-source! Have you tried a refreshing anana juice on the rocks, at the beach? Just awesome πŸ™‚
    What a confusion with pine cone!

    Happy weekend,

    How fascinating! Who would have ever thought that pineapple was such a status symbol. Forget Gucci or Prada. I’ll take a pineapple instead. πŸ˜‰

    Trying to imagine the first taste of a pineapple in Europe.I suppose the voyage home changed it but what a kick – discovering something new for your homeland. Loving the history, the pineapple building is sweet and the cake even more so.

  12. February 7, 2010 at 11:44 AM

    I love, love, love pineapple! But, I can only eat two or three bites and then my tongue starts to feel all weird and I start to loose the ability to taste anything for about an hour. Though when grilled with some brown sugar (yum!), baked or canned it has no effect on me. Thanks for the recipe – my copy of water’s fruit is in a box somewhere… Pineapple does really look pretty cool.

  13. February 7, 2010 at 2:50 PM

    I wish I wasn’t allergic to pineapple……..!

  14. February 7, 2010 at 6:20 PM

    How funny that pineapples were status symbols! And the pineapple tower on the house is quite pretty. And I love the cake – ginger is a nice flavor to go with pineapple.

    Gera – Lucky you, I wish I was near a pineapple source, ah heaven!

    Carolyn – agreed, I pinned and then edited a nearly similar sentence.

    Claudia – agreed, kind of reminds me when I was very young and they just introduced kiwi.

    Gastro – Oh, sorry to hear about the pre-determined limits, I’d be inclined to push the boundaries there.

    Kitchen Butterfly – I am so sorry to hear that, that is a problem.

    Reeni- I know! I thought the roof top very unique and attractive too. That recipe is a favorite, but then its hard to go wrong with Chez Panisse.

    J’adore les ananas. I just made a warm pineapple compote. My sister-in-law got the pineapple from a friend as a combination birthday present / commemorative gift for the season premiere of “Psych” (the comedy show on USA TV; there’s a running gag on the TV show where they hide a pineapple somewhere in each episode). Anyways, at first I thought it was an American tradition as a warm/welcoming present because I’ve been in Williamsburg (VA) and I remembered the symbol of pineapple. hehe

  17. February 8, 2010 at 12:19 PM

    That’s so funny that people used to rent pineapples. LOL
    I LOVE fresh pineapples. They are absolutely one of my favorite fruits. Thank you for the info and sharing a great recipe!

  18. February 8, 2010 at 6:15 PM

    Fabulous post! I knew pineapples were the symbol of hospitality. However, I never knew the deep seated reason as to their significant history. I can tell already I’ll be doing a ton of bookmarking when I visit here. Terrific! Ginger Pineapple Upside-Down Cake sounds so refreshing right about now. Thank you so much for sharing…

  19. February 8, 2010 at 9:09 PM

    You are always a well spring of information. Imagine renting a pineapple!

    Jackie – How fun, love that idea. Williamsburg was the place where I had seen the most but then I’ve never been to Pine Apple, AL

    Kitchen M – I had to laugh at that one too.

    Louise – Thanks! I can vouch that cake is yummy!

    Wizzythe Stick – I know, wonder what the going rate would be today?

  21. February 10, 2010 at 1:49 AM

    MMMMM,..your ginger pineapple upside down cake must taste awesome!

    That is one divine dessert, my dear!

    Thanks for the info on pineapples!! I didn’t know a lot about them!

  22. February 11, 2010 at 3:11 PM

    Rented pineapple, I love it! I love the pineapple as a symbol of welcome too. Such an interesting story for a delicious fruit.

  23. February 11, 2010 at 3:55 PM

    I love your decor comparison between pineapple and bacon. I agree on both accounts. I actually just learned within the last year or so about the whole hospitality and pineapple thing. I also didn’t know Brazil held such a strong history for them. I will say that I haven’t ever had pineapple anything like what we ate in Brazil. It tastes like pina colada wo the rum. πŸ™‚ The Antiguan Black Pineapple was a close second. Oh, and have you seen a pineapple plant? I flipped out the first time I saw one (recent too). I had no idea how they grew.

    I picked up a pineapple last week. This cake sounds delicious!

  24. February 13, 2010 at 7:10 AM

    Growing up I always wondered as a wee English learner why pineapple was called such. There’s nothing piney (well, sort of) or apple-y about it. πŸ™‚ When I moved on to studying French, “anana” also became one of those false friends. It directs your thought to “banana” first. This fruit is linguistically cunning and dangerous, I tell ya. πŸ™‚

    The recipe sounds *so* good. Great variation on the traditional pineapple upside-down cake. Ginger and pineapple go very well together indeed.

  25. February 17, 2010 at 10:06 AM

    I’ve never heard of Pine Apple, AL. Interesting! I just looked at it on Wikipedia πŸ˜›

    Sophie – It is indeed very tasty. That cookbook is a classic here.

    Lisa – It had me grinning too!

    Lori – I agree pineapple fresh from the source is a heady treat indeed. I’ll have to check out the Black Pineapple, sounds very intriguing.

    Leela – I have the same feeling on both accounts. Phew it makes me feel better as I am by no means a linguist.

    Jackie – I know, almost worth a trip to Alabama!

  27. February 22, 2010 at 12:26 AM

    Would love to send you some snapshots of paper/plastic “pineapple” decorations πŸ™‚ …what is your email address? …you can also email me at tigerfish1101@yahoo.com.sg and I will reply your email with snapshots of Chinese New Year decorations of “pineapples”.

  28. February 23, 2010 at 5:07 PM

    I loved learning about the history of pineapples. It neat to know that these fruits were once so rare that you could sell it to your neighbor.

    Well, I am very happy to have stumbled upon this information! My girls and I are researching, hosting a “Boston Tea Party” just before the fourth of July. As I was looking into decor, I wondered; “what’s with the pineapple symbol on everything?”
    Thank you very much! Question answered!

    Tigerfish – Thanks so much!

    Christine – I know, the history here is as much fun as eating the fruit

    Mrs. Krumrich – Glad to help.
