So I’m going to show you the super easy step by step way How to Cut Up a Pineapple and Pick One Out! I didn’t even know how to buy one that was ripe..I’ll show you that too! I want YOU to enjoy fresh pineapple too!

How to pick out a ripe Pineapple
Which one do I pick? (I didn’t even know how to pick a Pineapple out!) Well it’s easy..the more Yellow and Softer when pressed on, on the outside, the riper it is..that’s it. If the leaves on top are starting to turn brown..Umm like the one in the picture..then it’s starting to get over ripe..don’t buy it unless you are going to cut it up right away. You can buy them green too..they just have to sit on your counter and ripen a few days.
So like me, you may be wondering “How do you cut up a Pineapple?” Well it’s SO EASY!
This is the best way to cut up a Pineapple for me because I’m usually in a hurry and this only take minutes!
How to Cut up a Pineapple!
Turn the Pineapple on it’s side..
Cut off the Top and Bottom
Now just slice down..cutting the outer Pineapple off.
Don’t worry about those little pieces left..the eyes..just go back and cut those out after the outer layer is off…
Now see that middle core…just slice all around that..straight down
Then cut up those chunks..YUM!
Now enjoy your new accomplishment and eat! YUM!
What foods have you avoided because you didn’t know “how” to prepare them?
