Your welcome and I like the ham idea. It's a west coast dish and they serve it in a halved out Pineapple shell. Was going to try doing it but my Pineapple was quite ripe. The physicians creed is: "Above all, do no harm." Thought I'd do no harm and not even try hollowing it out.Damn.......that's right up my alley.......digging the different textures and potential flavor profiles.
Could see adding some ham chunks in that and making a " bog" out of it......
Bog referring to a dish in the south like " chicken bog" sometimes referred to as a perloux .........chicken , sausage, mirepoix and rice mixture.
As always, thanks for sharing.
You ever had a bog or perloux?Your welcome and I like the ham idea. It's a west coast dish and they serve it in a halved out Pineapple shell.

No. And in fact I'll look it up as I have never heard of it. Now that I think of it, I've never seen the Thai Pineapple rice outside LA.You ever had a bog or perloux?
Comfort food for sure and everybody thinks there's is the best........
I haven't run across it much outside the southeast.
