 Jerk Turkey Tenderloins
This turkey recipe is best with fresh pineapple, however, on particularly busy days, I have used canned pineapple tidbits in an effort to speed preparation even more. My family enjoys this recipe several times a year. It's good on the grill, too. —Holly Bauer, West Bend, Wisconsin
