Freshly Sliced PineapplePosted: January 7, 2012
I’m here to share a fun new gadget I recently discovered. It makes cutting pineapples easy and it’s called a pineapple corer.
I know…I’m probably late to the party, but hear me out. Despite my growing passion for cooking, I am a self-admited utensil snob. I consider most shiny new gadgets to be nothing both clutter. My first preference is to always get my hands dirty and prepare food the old fashion way, relying on only a few vital utensils. You may think I’m crazy, but I’m not even a fan of the dishwasher! No pain no gain, right?
My brother and Allie recently got me a bunch of stuff from William-Sonoma. One of the items in the gift set was an avocado cuber. The thought was great, but I’ve been cubing avocados with a basic knife for years and could not find the space in my kitchen or mental will to accept this gift. Call me stubborn, but I had to return it. While on line at the register, I saw a pineapple corer and decided to give it a shot since my existing pineapple cutting experience far from pleasant. The results were great. The process was mess-free and allowed me to cut full slices (rather than small cubes using my old method).
- cut off the top of a pineapple
- place pineapple in a bowl
- press corer into the pineapple and turn clockwise while applying firm pressure
- turn until you reach the bottom. you will feel the resistance
- unscrew the corer by turning router clockwise and pulling with a little pressure
