How to cut a Fresh Pineapple
Here is how to cut that fresh pineapple you have in your kitchen.
There are several ways, but I am going to show you the most practical since I doubt you are interested in carving a spiral design into your fruit.

Carefully cut off the top
Notice the dark “eyes” around the edge and the round core.
Place the edge of your knife behind the eyes and cut the peel off.
Cut all the way down
Viola! Peeled Pineapple!
Slice it into thick rounds
Cut the rounds into quarters, leaving triangle shapes, the core being the tip. You can cut the tips off, or leave them as something to hold onto while eating with your fingers. Or use a fork and knife.
Place the cut pineapple in a nice dish and serve.
Lay the pineapple on one side and carefully cut off the top.
Stand the pineapple up and make a cut from the top to the bottom just behind the round brown ‘eyes’
Continue cutting all the way around until all peel has been removed
