Because I love fresh pineapple so much, and because I didn’t know how to cut one until I was in my 50′s, I decided to show you how to do it. If you don’t own one of these pineapple corers you are going to need a big sharp knife. Your pineapple won’t turn out all pretty like the corer will do, but you can still get to the fruit and enjoy it.
Lay the pineapple on a cutting board or counter top, and cut off the top.
Next, turn the pineapple around, and slice off the bottom.
Set the pineapple on one flat end, and using the same big sharp knife, slice off the peel all the way around the pineapple.
When all the peel is cut off, cut the pineapple in half.
Cut each of the pineapple halves in half again.
Slice off the hard inner core from each of the pineapple pieces.
I like my fresh pineapple with a shake of salt. What do you do with yours?
