What to Do with My Latest Pineapple

My latest pineapple is almost ready for picking!!!  We love growing pineapple even though it takes forever to get fruit.

We usually just slice it up and eat it.

Did you know that you can grow your own pineapple? 
Even if you do not live where it is sunny and warm all year long, you can still plant one in a pot and keep it inside...as long as it gets lots of bright light!  All you have to do is twist the top off of a pineapple, like this...

See how the end is twisted?!?

Then, you just place it on top of the dirt in the pot...making sure it is standing up.  After about a week, it will root itself in the dirt.  Then, you just wait say, 18 months and you will have a ripe pineapple!
So...what would you do with a pineapple?!?
We've heard of Pineapple Upside Down Cake, but we are not big bakers over here. And we once had a Lime Pineapple Jam but we don't know how to make that.
Any ideas?

    Quick question... we always thought pineapples were no no's for us K9s, can you help us with that?
