This is a great way to peel a pineapple. By doing it this way you save more of the fruit, rather then wasting it by cutting in too deep, it also looks nice cut into slices.

First cut off the top and bottom.

Then cut the outer peel off, be sure not to cut in too deep, you still want to be able to see the holes.

Now find the pattern that is made by the holes left behind. They spiral around the pineapple. Make sure you find the longer diagonal line.

Start by following one of the lines in the middle of the pineapple, cut 2-3 holes out by cutting in diagonally on each side of the holes. Continue until the entire line is cut out.


Next, cut out the next closest line of holes. Do this until all of the diagonal lines of holes are cut out.

Slice anyway you would like and enjoy.

When I peel a pineapple, I slice it in the thickness that I want. Then I stick a knife inside the skin and cut around the skin and I push out the pineapple till all of the skin is removed.

Source: This process was developed from my cleaning fish and removing their skins.
