Pineapples will not ripen once picked, so select carefully and use your nose. Ripe pineapples give off a sweet, fresh, tropical smell.

To test for ripeness pull one of the green spiky leaves. If it can be removed easily from the crown it's ready. 

Fresh turmeric rhizomes are available from greengrocers. Handle carefully as it will stain skin and clothing.

Buy powdered turmeric from a reputable retailer, as poor quality, cheap turmeric is sometimes diluted with starches.
