The best way to properly cut up a pineapple into spears, chunks or rings.

We are all about the fresh summer fruit right now and have been devouring a pineapple daily. There are so many fun things to do with fresh pineapple, from serving pineapple spears on sticks, grilling pineapple rings, adding to fried rice, making creamy ice cream, and hollowing out for tropical smoothies. You can buy pre-sliced pineapple at most grocery stores, and my kids always want to grab a pack at Trader Joe’s. The thing is, there’s just so much unnecessary plastic and additional cost.
