    Donùt cut fro, butt to crown as the butt is super sweet and the crown is sour. Keep them in wedge and start to eat from the crown side...

    FYI her way is the way ,at least one, major grocery chain(s) cut their prepare fruit. That is also the way to cut a watermelon. Cut ends, stand it up , then cut/peel outer skin then cut into bite size pieces (also works for cantaloupe and honeydew. Except after peeling use a large spoon to remove the seeded membrane area. Then cut horizontally in vertically to make bite-size pieces.)

      Worked for a store preping fruit and sometimes when I used the pineapple corer I'd snag a cord or two (or 3...or more) and vampire the hell outta it (Away from the consumer product. What I was thirsty and it wasn't on the sales floor.)

    My technique is the same as your father, I actually have 5 pineapples growing/maturing in my garden at the moment, planted from tops or crowns removed from store bought pineapple, I planted those 2 years ago some directly in my garden and some are in big pots and here in Cambodia my pineapple takes around 2-3 months tops to mature. The new pineapples I get from replanted crowns are smaller but have nothing to be ashamed off in terms of taste and sweetness! They are just mind blowing! I actually leave them on the plant till they turn almost completely yellow...
    Next one to be devoured will be in a week or two max, can’t wait!!

  • Bruce Dow

    One of the best ways to eat pineapple, is to peel, make [about] 1/4" thick slices, place them on a tray and sprinkle lightly, with cinnamon. Put them in the sun, turn over after first day, and within two days, they will have dried, and shrunk to around half the original size, ... but those pieces are so delicious, most people cannot stop eating them. They keep well. Note: An adjustable banjo slicer, if you have one, is maybe the easiest, and fastest way of slicing them evenly.

    The reason why the the pineapple on the viral video works better is because it’s not pineapple. It’s a different fruit similar to pineapple but it has a different name and it’s more round. It is found in South America .

    Let's try this again...Here is a recipe I've made a few times, and it's really good. I hope if you decide to try it, you'll enjoy it...

    Ranch Chicken Salad

    1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks drained, reserving juice
    , or you could use fresh pineapple, reserving 1/4 cup of the juice
    ½ cup mayonnaise
    1 cup sliced celery
    1 packet (1 ounce) Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
    2 cups cubed, cooked chicken

    STEP 1
    In a large bowl, combine chicken, celery, and pineapple chunks, and set aside.
    STEP 2
    In a small bowl, mix the dressing mix with mayonnaise and ¼ cup of the reserved pineapple juice until well blended. Pour dressing on the chicken mixture and toss well to coat. Chill covered at least 1 hour before serving.

    I cut a pineapple just like you, but I don't go down the middle, but just cut off the good pineapple and leave the core. More importantly, I don't dice the entire pineapple until I'm ready to serve it, so it remains intact as whole large slivers until it is going to be eaten the next couple days.

  • LostInMySpace
    LostInMySpace 3 days ago

    I think if you use a paring knife and just score the grren outer edge to get it started so the skin is cut, the remaining result will work.

    4:02 what I usually do is root the crown in water first. From my experience, your way can work but it is 50/50 chance. With no roots, the crown may dry quickly and die. What I usually do, is twist off the crown, root it and then, plant it.

      They should need a bit of pulling (think feeble person strength). They shouldn't fall out. Elsewise you wind up with a rotting pineapple.

    Okay I just went to the dole plantation in Hawaii, and I have a tip! So the lady there was showing how to open a pineapple (keep in mind I don’t like pineapple so I was half listening) then she dunked the chopped up pieces of pineapple into a clean thing of water, and I asked my mom (who was paying attention because she loves pineapple) and I said, why did she dunk it in the water? And she said it was to remove the acid! It makes it not hurt to eat it! That’s apparently the secret and I just wanted to let everyone know about it. That’s a tip from dole themselves!
