Here’s Why You Should Soak Pineapple in Salt Water

Fruits and vegetables are all favorites. I love pineapple. Summer is my palate's ideal season.

Pineapple upside-down cake and pineapple sheet cake are my go-to dishes, although I occasionally eat it plain. Fresh, juicy pineapple tastes best after a hot day.

Pineapple is healthy and has a unique flavor. Others (like me) can't get enough. People avoid this golden fruit because it causes stinging or itching in the mouth and throat.

Bromelain, a pineapple protein, causes them when active. If you don't like the taste, you may feel off.

Salting pineapple is a nice hack. By the time you ingest bromelain, the salt will have deactivated it. 

As usual, chop pineapple. The rough skin and eyes are removed. Then spiral-cut it to generate surface area. After that, massage salt into the pineapple's crevices.

Rinse well. The salt should have activated the bromelain protein, eliminating the strange mouthfeel. Cut it and enjoy!
