Expert Tips

Fruits offer a host of nutrients including vitamin C to accompany their great taste. Be sure to get at least 2 to 3 servings of fruit daily.

Purchasing pineapple have you in prickles? A ripe pineapple should have a sweet pineapple fragrance at the bottom of the fruit, and there should be no soft spots.

To each his own! Pass separate bowls of sour cream, brown sugar, ginger and cherries. Everybody gets as much of whatever they want, and it saves you the mixing step!
