Pineapples are often found in southern homes, the pineapple is considered to be a symbol of hospitality.
Pineapples were once the food of kings, and are now available to everyone.
Pineapples have graced the entries to southern homes and the wealthier homes often served pineapples to guests as a treat. If you were served pineapple, you knew that your hostess had gone to great deal of expense to make guests feel welcome and comfortable.
You will often find a sign greeting visitors with a pineapple symbol and "Welcome Friends" greeting visitors to a southern home.
Pineapple sandwiches are served during the summer at church functions, ladies luncheons, or simply a meal or snack. It is important to note that a simple pineapple sandwich tastes a little more special if placed on slices of bread that are round!
The decor is found throughout homes. Everything from a simple key rack near the back door, to the pineapple finial on the bedroom lamps, and the pineapples that greet a visitor at the front door.
Congealed salads are a popular dish served in the summertime. Many recipes call for pineapple in these cool and delicious salads.
Whether you are a front door guest, or a back door guest, my pineapples are waiting to greet visitors.
