Do you have a fresh pineapple that you need to use? Make this easy Pineapple Chutney. The Pineapple adds tons of the Caribbean "Flava," while the red chili pepper provides spiciness. Meanwhile, the sugar adds sweetness, balanced out by the acidity of the fresh lime juice. Your taste buds will be doing a little happy dance. To make this Pineapple Chutney, start by sautéing the red onion and spices in olive oil. Then add the ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes until the chutney thickens. 

Besides being tasty, this chutney is also nutritious. Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and manganese, which boosts immunity and bone health. It also contains bromelain, a digestive enzyme that may make it easier to digest meat. Bromelain may also reduce inflammation.

This Pineapple Chutney goes well with your favorite grilled protein and Rotis, like Trinidad Sada Roti, Trinidad Paratha Roti, and Trinidad Pepper Roti.
