Baked Pineapple

If you get a tingly, sore mouth after eating pineapple you might have an oral allergy syndrome reaction to it.  I always thought it was the acidity!  If you have allergies to things such as grass, birch, or ragweed, your mouth area cells sometimes mistake certain foods (often fruits) as those, causing a reaction.  With most foods (but not always), cooking takes care of the problem.  So after years of avoiding pineapple because I thought I was allergic to it, I'm eating it again!  It is moderate in histamines, though, so I'm eating it every once in awhile.

Baked Pineapple
Trim the outside of the pineapple off and cut into slices.  Place slices on a baking sheet.  You can sprinkle each slice with brown or raw sugar if you want a nice dessert, but baking makes the pineapple taste sweeter just by itself.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes (depends on how thick your slices are), or until the pineapple is beginning to brown slightly.
