How to Cut a Pineapple
Learn how to cut a whole, fresh pineapple into chunks with this easy, step-by-step video tutorial.
Good morning, friends!
Just popping in again today to share this little video I created.
I know somebody who spends $9.99 a pound on cut pineapple, and I just think that is crazy! A whole fresh pineapple costs just a few dollars, and they’re available all year ’round. (And I know I don’t have to convince you that fresh is better than canned.) We almost always have one lying around the kitchen, for smoothies, snacks, whatever! It takes me about 3 1/2 minutes to break one down into bite-sized pieces (I timed it!), but through the magic of video editing this video tutorial teaches you in just a little over 2.
Great video! I may or may not have let a pineapple get over-ripe just because I didn’t feel like tackling it…
I’m gonna keep my mouth shut right now and NOT admit that I have one on my counter right now… lol! Even when it’s easy I still sometimes get lazy I guess. Thanks so much for stopping by again Sharon, and for the sweet comment!
Awesome video, Allie! I have never done anything with a whole pineapple before but now I’ll know how! I kinda want to go get one right now, haha. 🙂
Go get it girl! Lol… so glad you enjoyed the video, Beth! Thanks so much sweetie 🙂
this was very helpful! thanks for sharing Allie!
My pleasure Manali! I’m so glad you thought so!
Thanks for the video. This will definitely come in handy with Summer around the corner.
Thanks Chineka! Hope you’re having a great weekend sweetie!
Truly fascinating post. I confess, I’m guilty of of buying those cored pineapples in the store, the problem? The cores are largely still there! My sister always complains about when I cut it myself how there’s always core still in my slices! And my pieces aren’t even. I really need to try this, the way you sliced out the core was ingenious! My 5 year old is insisting we watch the video again….here we go!! It must be really good if it can compete with Frozen! Thanks.
Ha! Wow I can’t believe she’d choose cutting a pineapple over Frozen! I totally agree, besides charging a fortune for pre-cut pineapple, the stores do such a crappy job with it! The hunks are always ginormous and full of woody core. It’s a crime.
Such a good tutorial! I’m the only one in my family who volunteers to cut the pineapple when it’s ripe. 😀
Thanks Erin! There’s really nothing to it, right?
Great video, and it’s so true — people spend so much on pre-cut pineapple when it takes all of 5 minutes to do it yourself! I’ve totally been wanting to try videos but I’m kinda chicken. 🙂
It was a big step for me too Marcie! When I have the time though, it’s a lot of fun. Thanks sweetie!
I love this video Allie! I would love to do videos but honestly have no idea how to make it happen haha I need to do some research 🙂
And I so agree with you – cutting a pineapple yourself is soooo the way to go! Way cheaper and I think tastes fresher too!
So much better, right?
I have been doing a ton of research for months now and I finally feel like I sorta get the basics, but man, it’s a whole new world and there is just TONS still to learn. Good luck Ashley!
Great video, Allie! I had no idea how to cut a pineapple, but thanks to you now I do!
I think this might make you an internet sensation!
Haha! Thank you Helen! I’m so happy it was useful for ya 😉
