One of my favorite summer treats is pineapple. It's cool, sweet and tangy all at the same time! I visited an organic pineapple farm in Costa Rica a little over a year ago, and it was amazing to see how they grow. I'm pretty smart on how things grow, but I wasn't sure what to expect. I was quite surprised!



Here's a field to get an idea of how big the plants are. Each plant grows one pineapple. It takes two years for the plant to mature and grow a fruit.




Here are some neat rows of pineapples. All of the things you do to "test" if a pineapple is ripe is false. They should be picked ripe and do not ripen after picking. 



 And a little baby one! Pineapple is a Hawaiian fruit but Costa Rica has the perfect weather to grow them. I saw a site that said they grow 60% of the world's pineapple supply. I'm not sure if that's true, but we had fresh ripe pineapple right out of the field and it was the best I've ever had. 


Tasty Summer Treat: Pineapple Upside Down Cake
My favorite pineapple recipe is Pineapple Upside Down cake, and this one actually comes from the side of the Duncan Hines box. You make it in a skillet and I actually substitute a cup of pineapple juice from the can instead of using water. I've never made it with fresh pineapple. I'm inserting the link to the recipe here: Duncan Hines Double Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Tasty reads: 
This is an excerpt from Exceeding Boundaries, my first book! Adam is trying to bring Megan out of her sexual shell and decides to use pineapple for his lesson in seduction. Warning: This is SPICY, so if you're not into that, just scroll on down and do the prizes. 

An Excerpt From Exceeding Boundaries by Mia Downing
Adam nuzzled under her shirt—his shirt—and let his tongue warm a path across her stomach, ignoring the patch of curls he wanted so much to dive into. “A woman can’t talk about anal sex like that at dinner and not offer a man dessert. Do you have any suggestions?”
“There’s fresh fruit in the fridge.”
“That could be refreshing.” He nipped her belly and rose to investigate. Sure enough, there was a plastic container with watermelon and pineapple spears. He grinned, anticipating the fun he could have.
“Do you want a plate?” she offered, sliding forward to get one.
His grin widened as he realized she had no clue what he was going to do to her. “Nope.” He took out a piece of pineapple and took a bite. Sweet, succulent juices trickled down his throat, though they weren’t anywhere as sweet as the juices he wanted to taste. “You want some?”
She grabbed a napkin and wiped the juice his chin and jaw. “Not now.”
“You sure?” He pulled her closer and dabbed the spear to her lips and then kissed the juice away, his tongue lapping a path down her chin, along her jaw. His teeth nipped at her lower lip. Satisfied, he pulled back to watch her reaction.
He loved the way innocence tore away as she realized his full intent. Her eyes widened and her mouth opened slightly. She bit her lip, and the hand on his chest trembled. He took another bite of the fruit and this time she leaned in, tentatively, and licked his mouth, his chin. Her gaze returned to his, as if seeking approval.
“Not bad?” he whispered.
“Better than I expected.”
He chuckled. “Always hard to please, you are.” He unbuttoned her shirt and smoothed the cloth away from her perfect breasts—not too small or large. “Maybe this will meet your approval.” He dabbed the spear on her rosy tipped nipple and then devoured the juices eagerly, his tongue lapping the hard peak. Then he sucked, enjoying her soft moan, his other hand sliding to her other breast to flick that nipple with his thumb. He broke the suction and reached for another slice of pineapple. “Lean back.”
She didn’t look too sure as she did as he asked, bracing her palms behind her. He vowed to make her very sure as he nudged her thighs wider and drew a line of juice from her navel to top of the curls between her legs. His tongue then followed the path in a quick swoop, enjoying the salty tang of her skin mixed with the sweetness.
He sat in the chair and drew another path from her knee along her inner thigh, following right behind with his tongue, ending at the juncture. She jumped a bit, and he blew a breath across her clit. He glanced up and met her gaze as he slid the spear to her clit, then downward, pushing just the tip into her pussy.

She gasped, and he chuckled. “See, getting your two servings of fruit a day doesn’t need to be torturous.”

Spicy hot excerpt! Thanks. M. S.

Hywela Lyn said...

Fascinating post - I've never seen a pineapple growing, we don't really get the weather for it, here in the UK! (Plenty in the shops though but it must be great to see them in their natural state!)

kaydenclaremont said...

Thanks for the recipe and the hot read!

Nell Castle said...

I always leave my pineapples on the table to ripen a few days. Now I find out it I don't need to bother. Thanks for an informative post and a great summer recipe.

Linda Romer said...

Whew! Steamy hot. Just like I like 'em. Fresh pineapple is my favorite, now more ways than one. LOL

Brenda Sparks said...

Thank you for the yummy recipe and for sharing Exceeding Boundaries. Your book looks yummy too!

Kimberly Keyes Romance said...

I enjoyed your excerpt. of course I had to read it when you said it was spicy and not for those who weren't "that." Loved it. Too bad I'm allergic to pineapple! lol
