How to prepare a pineapple

Visit for a video clip of this and other easy-to-follow culinary techniques.

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.


Step 1

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.


Step 2

Carefully cut the pineapple in half lengthways and then into thick wedges.


Step 3

Remove the tough central core and discard.


Step 4

Chop each wedge into bite-sized chunks.
