How to Cut a Pinapple

Pineapple Preparation

how to cut a pineapple How to Cut a Pineapple
Before slicing the pineapple, you need to cut its bottom and top first. You can twist the leaves off at the top. But if you want to use that part as a decoration for another centrepiece or fruit tray, just slice the top and leaves off. You just need to cut about 1 inch down into the flesh of the pineapple’s top part.

  1. Set the pineapple down laying on its side. Slice the top of the pineapple off. You can choose one of the above-mentioned methods.
  2. Slice the bottom off. To do this, cut about 1 inch all the way through from the fruit’s base.
  3. You can throw away both of the pineapple’s pieces unless you want to use the top as decoration.

Pineapple Skinning

This time, you need to get rid of spiky skin.

  1. Set pineapple in an upright position on its now flat base. With the use of the jagged knife, slice off segments of the pineapple’s skin starting from the top to its bottom.
  2. As much as possible, leave a big amount of flesh on your fruit. It is important not to slice too much fruit off along with its skin when doing the slicing.
  3. After you’re done with the slicing, remove stray bit of pineapple skin left using your knife.

Tips to Cut a Pineapple

  • Choose a pineapple which is already ripe.
  • Use a jagged knife to slice through the skin and make sure the blade remains symmetrical to the surface of the pineapple
  • Before eating, be sure to take away the brown knobs coming from the skin of the pineapple.
