I didn’t learn this little trick until a few years ago, so if you’re way ahead of me, apologies. A friend, Alyson (an awesome Occupational Therapy instructor), told me to twist, yes TWIST off the top of the pineapple. (I had always chopped it off with a knife). Like this:
One you have removed the top, show your pineapple how to do a headstand, and ask that it remains that way for an hour or so, like this:
Turns out this allows all of the juices that have been sitting at the bottom redistribute, thus making the whole shebang tastier! Much, much cheaper than buying already cut-up pineapple, and much better!
