I love fresh fruits, but some fruits are cumbersome to cut. I was juicing the other day when friend asked how in the world did I manage to cut a pineapple. At first, I thought her general lack of domestic skills was the reason for this inquiry. Then, I got several similar questions after I posted pics on social media. I figured this must be a common question, so here’s my quick & dirty method to cutting a pineapple.
You can’t really hold on to the top, which is why you need a knife that can cut right through. Firmly hold the pineapple and slice through the top.
I’ve cut through a pineapple with a dull knife before; I had to use more of an old-school chainsaw method.
Sit the pineapple in an upright position.
Note: I was using this pineapple for juicing purposes, so I left a lot of skin bits here and there.
Note: this pineapple yielded about 200mL of juice.
