Welcome to Mum&sons

My two eldest boys challenged me to start a cooking blog with simple recipes that we can cook together - and my youngest one has now joined in. I am hoping they pick up some cooking and photograph skills... or that at least they learn to design and run a blog.


This is a super-simple dessert.

You need:
- one pineapple
- one handful of mint leaves
- two tablespoons of white sugar
- one teaspoon of water  - if you are preparing this for adults, substitute the water by a tablespoon (or two!) of vodka.

Cut the pineapple into small chunks.  Just before you are going to serve it, put the mint leaves, sugar and water into a mortar and bash them with the pestle (do this in the last minute as otherwise the mint will go brown). Mix it with the pineapple.

If you do this for adults, replace the water with the vodka. You can serve it with chocolate brownies - everybody loves it.
