Don't fear the pineapple!

Sunday, April 15, 2012

I have always loved fresh pineapple, but not enough to take on my fear of them fighting me tooth and nail as I tried to cut it into tasty little bite-sized bits. Ridiculous, I know.

Well, last week they were only 99 cents at Aldi, so, I decided it was time to take one on. Now, it may have been have sharp my knife was, but I found it way easier to cut up then cantaloupe or watermelon - which I cut up all the time with reckless abondon. In fact, I wished that I had another one to cut up, I was having fun! My beautiful little fruit came with suggested cutting directions, and they did not let me down.

{ Cut off the "hat", as I call it. Cut it in half, then halve each of them again. Then, slice off the middle rind, slice against the back, chop up the rest. }

I am delighted to report that they are on sale again this week for 99 cents and I am going to get one. Or maybe two. Mmm mmm mmm.

It was quite possibly the most delcious pineapple I have ever had : )

    It is liberating to learn how to cut up a pineapple. I used to fear them too and a friend of mine showed me how she cuts them up. She basically slices off what she wants as she wants it, cuts off the outer rind, cuts the slice in quarters, cuts out the middle and voila! it's easier to do than to explain! LOL Now, I just cut it up how ever I feel like it, usually cutting up a whole one at once - possibly like how you describe or I cut off the ends, slice off the outside rind, quarter it lengthwise, cut out the middle and chop up what's left. I was getting them super cheap for a while, but not sure the price is so good, up here in the subarctic! I'll have to watch for sale prices!
