A weakness like a veggie or another fruit or meat or 15 min with your blender on your dime. ADAPT
    LOL.. no.. I was serious!!! They are high in Vit C and other things. I dont have them all the time, but they are one of my breakfast foods when nothing sounds good and I feel run down. Or just a snack instead of ice cream.

    1 can of cold coconut milk and 1 can of pineapple, blend together. Sometimes I toss in 2 TB or so of yogurt, and a handful of flaked coconut.

    I do have other things stored that are high in Vit C. Such as I accidentally made 4 gallons of orange marmalade that I am canning up today. Yes.. four gallons. But I also can up elderberry, rose hip syrup too.

    I started noticing in March I could not get pineapple at my 2 regular grocery stores.. so then I was on the hunt when it kept not showing up on the shelves.

      So where does that pineapple come out of? Hawaii or somewhere in the tropics? Maybe the covid quarantines had them shut down where fruit rotted and wasn't picked or canned? those disruptions in the food chain have long ripples...
      I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!

        Pineapple is plentiful here with multiple brands on the shelves. Bought a half dozen cans yesterday.

          During the last ammo shortage, primers and powder were both in short supply.
          Since it is a "different" bunch who are stocking up, this time they might be around for a while.

            I haven't seen any shortage in either pineapple or banana here in the Ozarks.
            What shortages there have been, over the past few months, seem to be spotty and temporary.

              Oddly, we now seem to have a shortage of white, food grade buckets...

              Cnning jars are on the shelf, here, but lids are not.

                Groceries have been quite busy even in the early mornings but no shortages of most items. Canning lids are still scarce here too. We were able to pick up ammo today too which was a nice surprise.

                  Oddly, there seems to be a persistent shortage of Chef-Boyardee Ravioli.
