Pineapple Princesses began as a tribute to Ruby Borrowdale, the home economist behind the 'Golden Circle Tropical Recipe Book' tested in the Golden Circle kitchen and modified and updated in the Pineapple Princesses' test kitchens.
As Ruby said "pineapple is a versatile food" . . .
no fat, high in vitamin C and full of the flavour of Queensland sunshine. The blog continues as more and more pineapple recipes are discovered from around the world.

Our friends Sue and Noel have a fabulous owner-built pole home in the Hunter Valley decorated with treasures from the not so distant past. Their collections of kitchen utensils are particularly curious. This recipe scrapbook is from Sue'sassortment offound objects.

Harwill Street, Camp Hill, Brisbane.
One tin crushed pineapple; 1 tblsp gelatine (softened in 2
tblsp cold water), 2-3 cup sweet sherry, 300ml whipped cream or thoroughly
chilled evaporated milk, 24 marshmallows (approximately 350g), glace cherries,
Cut marshmallows into small pieces, place in basin, pour
sherry over; cover and allow to stand overnight. On the following day dissolve
softened gelatine, stir into pineapple. Fold in marshmallow mixture and,
lastly, whipped cream. Fill into sweet dishes; chill until set. Decorate with
cherries and pieces of angelica.
I'm pretty sure Noel brought these essences home from the "exchange" - purely for decorative not culinary purposes! Anne.
