    I’d like to use fresh pineapple. Is there any special prep for using fresh pineapple in this recipe? I know there are issues with fresh pineapple and other ingredients but I prefer using fresh rather than canned.

      Hi Dianna, I think fresh pineapple would work just fine. I haven’t tried it that way myself yet. Please let me know how it works out for you 🙂
