  • fresh pineapple ?'s- picking, storing, cutting

    I bought a fresh pineapple today for the first time.  Hopefully it's sweet since I wasn't sure of the proper way to pick a ripe one.   I don't need it til Friday evening, so is it OK to keep it on the counter until I'm ready to cut it?   Now, how do I go about cutting it?   I kinda figured I'd use a sharp knife and cut off the outside, but I wasn't sure about the rest.  Is the whole inside edible?

    I have bought them and let them sit for a few days.. Picking them out is just a good guess for me.  I have a thing that you put down in pineapple after you cut the top off and turn it around and it brings out the center with no waste.. I dont know what you would call it.. QVC sells them but I picked mine up at Bed-Bath and Beyond for about $10... my DH usually does it and it makes it so much eaiser...  Hope this helps..  bdett

    Is the core edible?  I'll just be using a knife, not a corer.

    Thanks.

     I always cut the core out as it really isn't edible. Sometimes I slice the pineapple in rounds or cut it into bite size pieces. Here is a link showing how to cut a pineapple. Hope this helps.

    Well with this gadget the core stays in and the pinapple comes out in rings and you can cut it to your liking... then put in fridge..  I really enjoy the fresh pinapple better than the canned.. bdett
