It's a funny time of year for it, right between the holidays where
fruited breads are traditional, like Easter and Christmas. If you can
hold onto a pound or so, save it for your Christmas cake or mincemeat.
I would totally chop this up and put it in banana bread though. I
usually use the recipe in THE JOY OF COOKING, it's easy and reliable.
Include in a dried fruit dish at warm-weather events. I like to put out
dried apricots, raisins etc. in a dish to sneak electrolytes into the
guests at my pavilion.
Give to a Harry Potter fan. In Book 6, there's a professor who is very
fond of candied pineapple and this becomes a minor plot point. [There,
I think I got through that without spoiling anything.]
That's what I can come up with off the top of my head. Silly imagery!
