HOW TO CUT A PINEAPPLE

Pineapple is one of my favorite tropical fruits and it has amazing health benefits. Pineapple is a natural anti-histamine, congestion mover, and is also known for it’s cancer prevention proprieties. Pineapple also improves digestion, eye, respiratory, bone and heart health. It contains calcium, potassium, vitamin C, B6, manganese, magnesium, beta carotene, thiamin among other beneficial vitamins, nutrients, and minerals.

If you avoid pineapple (or purchase overpriced pre-cut pineapple) because cutting one intimidates you (this used to be me), here’s a really easy way to do chop it up so you end up with even pieces & a nice presentation.

Step 1: Slice the top and bottom off.

Step 2: Slice the skin off all sides (try to get as close as possible to the edge the skin, but still fully removing it).

Step 3: Stand the pineapple up and cut horizontally through the middle.

Step 4: Lay the two pieces flat on the cutting board, core up, and cut vertically right in the center of the core.

Step 5: Rid the 4 pieces of pineapple of their core.

Step 6: Slice horizontally to create bite-size pieces.
