Fresh pineapple is a delicious treat and so much tastier than canned.

But buying fresh pineapple slices or chunks that have been pre-cut tends to get a bit expensive, and the thought of cutting up one yourself might seem intimidating, given this beautiful bromeliad’s unusual shape and exterior texture.

Really, though, cutting a fresh pineapple is a lot easier than you might think. With these few easy tips, you will be able to enjoy fresh pineapple all summer.

What you will need:

• 1 large, ripe pineapple.

• Clean, large cutting board.

• Sharp, serrated knife.
