Cutting Fresh Pineapple
Quickly cut pineapple into bite-sized pieces with these simple steps — no fancy coring equipment needed.
To cut up fresh pineapple, first twist off the leafy top (if the fruit is ripe, it will come off easily) and cut the pineapple lengthwise into quarters; halve each quarter lengthwise.
Then, with wedges flat-side down, trim off the thin strip of core at the top of each wedge. Finally, cut between the skin and fruit (like skinning a fish), and slice each strip of pineapple into pieces.
