There’s nothing better than a fresh pineapple! I don’t care what you tell me…nothing in a can or jar comes even close to a fresh pineapple.
Learning how to cut a pineapple is quick and easy. A pineapple can be intimidating–sort of like when I first jumped off the top tier of a diving board. Looking down at the vast waters waaaaaaay below was incredibly intimidating. I wasn’t sure I could do it. But once I took the plunge, I realized just how simple it could be. Cutting a pineapple is the same. Once you take the plunge, you’ll see just how easy it is. There are really no special tools needed other than a cutting knife, paring knife, and potato peeler.
So just how do you choose fresh pineapples? It’s really quite simple and it requires just a pluck of a leaf…To test the ripeness of a pineapple, gently pull out one of the center leaves. If it comes out easily, it’s ripe. Easy, right?
