What’s not to love about pineapple! Juicy. Sweet. Tangy. Delicious. But, have you ever been a bit intimidated about preparing a whole pineapple? I know I always was. I suffered through the ridiculous expense of buying already cut pineapple (about 4x the cost of a whole pineapple) and then eventually changed to buying the cleaned and cored whole pineapple and cutting it up myself from there. But still, that was about 2x the cost of a whole pineapple.
I figured if I had intimidation issues with this thorny fruit, then perhaps you might as well. With the rising costs of food, we can all use a tip to save a buck or two. Here is the step by step on how to cut a whole pineapple either into whole slices or cubes for a fruit salad.
If you want pineapple rings and don’t have a device to core the pineapple, use this method. I think a pineapple corer is a waste of money with techniques like this one.
If you want cut pineapple for a fruit salad, then follow these steps. Again, a pineapple corer is a waste of kitchen space and money.
Add the cut pineapple to your prepared strawberries for a great fruit salad. This whole process only takes a couple of minutes and can save you big bucks.
