Our supersweet pineapples are grown in Costa Rica, where the climate produces intensely-flavoured fruit. They can be stored at room temperature for up to four days.
Remove the leafy crown with a sharp knife and cut a thin slice from the base. Slice the skin away from top to bottom, removing any brown 'eyes' as you go.
Carefully cut the pineapple in half lengthways and then into thick wedges.
Remove the tough central core and discard.
Chop each wedge into bite-sized chunks.
