How to cut a pineapple step by step
STEP 1 - CUT OFF TOP
Use a large chef’s knife to cut off the top of the pineapple.
STEP 2 - REST UPSIDE DOWN
Turn the pineapple upside down and place it on a plate; allow it to rest 30 minutes. Since pineapples are stored stem side up, gravity makes the juices run to the bottom. Resting the pineapple upside down for 30 minutes helps the juices to run back down and distribute for evenly juicy pieces.
STEP 3 - CUT OFF END
After 30 minutes, cut off the other end of the pineapple.
STEP 4 - REMOVE SKIN
Remove the skin of the pineapple by slicing it off, following the shape of the pineapple.
STEP 5 - CUT IN HALF, THEN QUARTER
Slice the pineapple in half, then again lengthwise.
STEP 6 - REMOVE CORE AT ANGLE
Remove the core by cutting it out at an angle.
STEP 7 - SLICE LENGTHWISE
Slice each quarter in half lengthwise…
STEP 8 - CUT INTO SMALLER PIECES
Then turn it and slice in the other direction to create pineapple chunks.
