Storing the pineapple
After you have cut your pineapple, you will need to store it properly to ensure that it stays fresh. There are a few different ways that you can store your pineapple, but the best way is to wrap it in plastic wrap and then place it in the fridge.
If you are not going to eat your pineapple right away, you can also slice it and then store it in an airtight container in the fridge. This will help to keep the pineapple from drying out.
When cutting a pineapple, it is important to take some safety precautions.
When cutting a pineapple, always use a clean and dry cutting board. Wash the cutting board with soap and water before cutting the pineapple. It is also important to use a sharp knife when cutting a pineapple. A dull knife can slip and cause injuries. To avoid slipping, grip the handle of the knife firmly with your hand. When cutting the pineapple in half lengthwise, be careful not to cut yourself on the sharp edges of the fruit.
After cutting the pineapple in half, remove the core from each half of the fruit. The best way to do this is to use a small paring knife or a melon baller.
Now you know how to cut a pineapple like a pro. With these easy steps, you’ll be able to enjoy this delicious fruit in no time. So the next time you’re tempted to reach for a pre-cut pineapple at the store, remember that it’s just as easy (and much cheaper) to cut your own at home.
