I love fresh pineapple all year long and fortunately we are able to purchase them all year long. I used to dread cutting the pineapple up and sometimes I would cheat and buy the already cut pineapple at Costco or Sams’ Club. But that was so expensive and sometimes the pineapple wasn’t completely ripe so I felt like it was a waste of money. Then I saw my friend Heather cut a pineapple with a really cook kitchen gadget so I bought one. Now I have fresh pineapple all the time and it only takes a few minutes! I can buy fresh pineapple at Costco for $2.99. That is a bargain!
I saw my friend Heather Goodwin cut a pineapple with a gadget like this and I knew I had to have one too! It is called a Stainless Steel Easy Pineapple Slicer and it cores and cuts the pineapple all at the same time.
It is as simple as it looks, just cut the top of the pineapple off and insert the slicer. Start turning the handle until it stop.
The pineapple gets cored and cut all at the same time and it pulls out so easily.
You can have rings or you can cut it into chunks. Easy – peasy!
Here is a short little video showing you exactly how this little gadget works. If you purchase items through my Amazon Associates links it helps to support the work here on Nutmeg Notebook and my You Tube channel with no extra cost to you! Thank you for your support.
Tom and I are working on making more videos and if you have any suggestion for what you want to see please leave me a comment here on the blog and we will consider your requests! I am getting more comfortable being in front of the camera so it’s not as scary as it was! Thank you for all of your support on this endeavor – it’s good to keep learning, growing and moving outside of our comfort zone.
Happy healthy cooking,
A Little Nutmeg Nugget: When I started this blog in January of 2010 I followed what I understood to be a healthy version of the standard American diet, ironically also known as the “SAD” diet. As interest in my own health and how it was affected by the food I ate evolved, I transitioned to a whole food plant based diet also known as “WFPB” diet. I have wrestled with the fact that this blog still contains all those posts and recipes from the SAD way of eating I have left behind. I no longer advocate for anyone to eat that way. At this time I am leaving those recipes and posts here. It is a record of my journey and how I came to follow a WFPB way of eating. It is my hope that those who still come here for those old recipes will be curious about what I am doing now. Perhaps they will dip their toes across the line as I did and try some plant based recipes and learn more about the health benefits.
I love hearing from you dear readers! Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question.
