  1. Place the pineapple on a cutting board on its side. Using a sharp knife, slice off the top green crown plus half an inch off the very top.


  1. Stand the pineapple in an upright position and carefully begin to cut the spikey skin, going from top to bottom and making sure to follow the curves of the pineapple. Be careful not to cut off too much from the sides, since it’s the sweetest part.
