Discover the simple and efficient way to cut a pineapple with this easy-to-follow step-by-step guide by SSP. To successfully cut a pineapple, you will need a large, sharp knife and a suitable cutting board. In case your knife lacks sharpness, consider utilizing a serrated knife for tasks involving the outer skin, such as trimming the top and bottom.

Instruction:

1. Trimming the pineapple. Begin by using a sharp knife to carefully slice off the top and bottom of the pineapple.

2. Halving the pineapple. Ensure the pineapple is balanced on the cut end, allowing it to stand upright. Proceed by slicing down the center from top to bottom.

3. Separating the core. Open the pineapple to reveal the inner part. You will notice a lighter section running vertically from top to bottom, known as the core. To separate the center core, position your knife in a V-shape and angle it inwards toward the middle. It is advisable to start near the middle if you don't have a large knife or are dealing with a smaller pineapple. Repeat the process on the other side, aligning the cuts accordingly.

4. Removing the core. Complete the process by making final cuts through the pineapple on both sides. This will result in four quarters without a center core. Be sure to discard the core.

5. Slicing each quarter down the middle. Working with one-quarter at a time, slice the flesh vertically down the middle, from top to bottom while being careful not to pierce the skin.

6. Slicing each quarter crosswise. Cut crosswise through each quarter to create small pieces, making sure to leave the skin intact. The resulting shapes may vary and can be either triangular or have a flat top, both equally enjoyable.

7. Removing the skin. To separate the fruit from the skin, gently run the knife along the skin. This step will free the fruit from its protective outer layer.

After following these steps, you can serve the pineapple quarters with the skin intact, resembling little boats, and consider adding toothpicks as a side garnish.
