Hi Anuja and Hetal,
Do you think you will ever show how to cut open a coconut and get out the coconut meat? I’ve tried and it seems like such a pain. I had hoped you might have a tip for an easier way. Thanks so much for adding a pinch of spice to our lives!
Just the other day I was lamenting how I have stopped eating pineapples because “they are so intimidating” (yes, my exact words too!) to cut. And I absolutely hate the sugary syrupy things they sell as pineapples in cans. Thanks a lot for this video! Just added pineapple to my grocery list
Enjoying your site. With the Pineapple – after taking off the top turn the pineapple upside down and let it rest for a day(on counter or in fridge) and this way all the juices that are in the bottom will come to the top making the whole pineapple more favourful and juicy.
Just wanted to add one thing, before you cut the pineapple, you make the pineapple in a sleeping position so that all the juice is spread across evenly and it taste juicer and better in the whole and not just at the bottom.
After viewing your video, I got a pineapple, cut both the ends and let it rest in the refrigerator uncovered for a day (sorry, got busy and did not get the time to cut it to chunks). The next day (today) I peeled it and chopped it into bite size pieces. It’s definately a lot for me to eat. So, my questions are:
1. As I cut the bottom and top and kept it open in the refrigerator, has it started fermenting? Sorry, not really sure how the fresh pineapple should look like, the color looks great, but not sure about the fermenting part..
2. I have stored the leftovers in a tight container. How long will it stay fresh in the refrigerator?
Please reply if you have some time. I don’t want to eat bad pineapple (if it’s getting bad). And might try ways to extend its life by other means if its not meant to stay more than a couple days..
I have to say – the video really gave me courage to get the pineapple first time in my life. It is an intimidating looking fruit, but your video and demo really helped! You guys rock!
The way I cut a pineapple is using a metal Pineapple corer found on Amazon.com. Cutting a pineapple using a kitchen knife is great but does create a little extra mess and takes a little more time. However using the pineapple corer is super fast and neat. Only down side is that you are left with as much flesh as the diameter of the corer. i.e there will be some wastage. Hence I try to use slightly smaller pineapples for this purpose.
Cut off the top of the pineapple. Place the corer on the center of the pineapple and rotate to cut the pineapple spirally. After it penetrates the bottom, pull out the entire thing out. The pineapple flesh comes out in a cylindrical spiral which can then be cut up and served without any mess.
