Morning Start: Pineapple works as a natural meat tenderizer

Your Morning Start for Monday, Aug. 30

Morning, and happy Monday! Can you believe that it’s the end of August already?

Fun fact: Pineapple works as a natural meat tenderizer

The bromelain enzyme in pineapples breaks down protein chains, making it a good ingredient in many meat marinades if you don’t have a lot of time. This is also why pineapples don’t work as jams or jellies – the enzyme breaks down gelatin. It also slightly degrades your tongue, but good news: the tongue regenerates these cells so you aren’t left with permanent damage.
