Pineapples are intimidating little things. They have those thick leaves and that prickly skin that makes getting to the good part seem impossible or at the very least, too much work. Honestly, they are very easy to cut, as long as you take your time and break it down properly. Below I’ll tell you step by step how to pick, cut, and store fresh pineapple!
When choosing a pineapple you want to be sure you are picking one that is ripe and ready to eat. A simple test is to grab a leaf from the top and snatch. If it comes out easily, she’s ripe and ready to go!
One normal sized pineapple usually gives me about a weeks worth. I usually freeze a couple bags for smoothies or fruit sorbet and then refrigerate the others for a grab and go snack.
