The beautiful Hluhluwe region of Northern KZN produces the most of SA's pineapples

The Hluhluwe Queen Pineapple Marketing Association was established on
11 November 1988 to promote pineapples.


Pineapples are a delicious, nutritious addition to any meal, with a high dose of Vitamin C, the vitamin essential for the growth and repair of skin tissue and to maintain healthy teeth and bones.
As an aid to digestion, pineapples are a must for your menu.

They are excellent meat tenderizers. Marinate tough meat for one hour with grated raw pineapple. This will soften and flavor the meat. The pineapple can then be scraped off the meat and added to water, wine or meat stock and thickened with maizena to form delicious gravy. Serve with pork, beef or chicken!
Use pineapples for a sweet-and-sour flavour to any stir-fry!

Remove access fat from the fillet. Make incisions in the fillet, but do not cut through the meat, approximately at 5cm intervals.
Stuff the incisions with the filling.
Bake in an pre-heated oven of 200°C for 15 min or longer depending on how well done you prefer your meat. Garnish with fresh herbs, salami, avocado and Queen pineapple slices.
Variations: The fillet can also be done on the Webber, but close it in tinfoil.
Remove foil when browning.

Serves 4-6.
