How to prepare and chop pineapple

This easy video from the Good Food cookery team shows you how to peel, slice, chunk and make carpaccio with pineapple.

Points to remember

  • Cut leaves and base off fruit using a sharp knife.
  • Rest the pineapple on its base and using a fruit knife, slice the peel in a downwards sawing motion to remove it, working your way round the whole fruit.
  • Cut into thin rounds, or lengthways into quarters, remove the woody core if you like and then cut into chunks.
  • An easy way to get rid of the core is using a cookie cutter, which will give you a classic pineapple ring.
