Flash back to 2011 when my husband and I went to the lovely island of Maui. Pineapple was abundant! They literally had little carts on the side of the road and using the honor system, you could drop your money into the slot and take a nice pineapple (or two). My husband and I bought a couple and asked a local how we were supposed to cut them.
HOW DO I KNOW IF THE PINEAPPLE IS READY TO EAT?
However, before we get into the step-by-step process of how to cut a pineapple first you need to know how to pick one! It is quite simple…. if the pineapple is green it is not ready to eat. If the outside of the pineapple is yellow, it is! See below for two images.
Ok so now the pineapple is ripe… What do I do next? Well, you need 4 things to begin the process.
Great! Let’s get started!
