TAKE A PEEK: PINEAPPLE DRUMSTICKS

One of our favorite things about the markets here is that you can buy pineapples already peeled and ready to eat for cheap. It's great that they are offered this way, because a) it's easy, but also because b) Cambodian pineapples are pretty small to start with, so we're fairly certain that if we were to peel them ourselves there would be nothing but the core left to eat! Pineapple drumsticks are 2 for $1 and there are usually plenty of sellers who stand by the market and peel these with large knives for most of the day. The way they cut them, and lots of practice, means they waste almost none of the flesh. Even still, there are often huge bags of pineapple peels next to the sellers by the end of the day!
