Prepping the Pineapple
Proper pineapple ring cutting starts with the preparation of the fruit itself. Do this by cutting off the top of the pineapple about 1 inch from the crown. Cut the bottom off the pineapple so it can sit level. Slice the pineapple skin off in a downward spiral motion. Be sure to get as close to the pineapple flesh as possible without taking any off with the skin. Next, cut the pineapple in half from top to bottom.
Cut off the crown
First, cut off the crown of the pineapple. You can do this by slicing 1-2 inches (2.5-5cm) from the top of the pineapple.
Be sure to cut off enough of the crown so that you can see the individual pineapple eyes.
Cut off the bottom
First things first: you need to cut off the bottom of the pineapple so it can sit flat on your cutting board. Use a large, sharp knife for this—a serrated knife will make it even easier. Slice about 1/2 inch (1 cm) off the bottom, being careful not to cut too much or you’ll lose a lot of fruit.
Slicing the Pineapple
Before you can even think about how to cut pineapple rings, you first need to know how to slice a pineapple. This may seem like a difficult task, but it’s actually quite simple. Here’s how to do it.
Slice the pineapple vertically, as close to the center as possible
When cutting a pineapple, the goal is to slice it as close to the center as possible. This will give you the most pineapple rings possible. To do this, start by slicing off the top of the pineapple (the leafy part). Then, stand the pineapple upright and slice it in half vertically. Once you have two halves, slice each half in half, and then slice each of those quarters in half. You should now have eight equal pieces.
From here, you can start slicing the pineapple into rings. The thickness is up to you, but remember that thinner slices will be easier to eat (and may also cook faster). Once you have your desired thickness, simply cut off the rough edges of each ring so that you have a perfect circle.
If you want to remove the core from each ring, use a small cookie cutter or a sharp knife to cut it out. Be careful not to cut too deeply or you’ll end up with a hole in the middle of your pineapple ring!
Cut the pineapple into rings, about 1” thick
Start by slicing off the top of the pineapple, about 1” below the crown. Turn the pineapple so that it can stand on this newly cut end, then slice down the sides, following the curve of the fruit, to remove the skin. If there are any brown “eyes” remaining, use a paring knife to remove them.
Next, cut the pineapple in half crosswise (through the center), then slice each half lengthwise into quarters. You should now have eight long wedges. Cut each of these wedges into rounds that are about 1” thick.
