Cutting and coring a pineapple can be messy and time consuming. In this video I show you how to peel and slice a pineapple in an easy and efficient way using a pineapple corer and slicer that I purchased at Williams-Sonoma.

Normally I don’t believe in fruit gadgets, but I’m sold on this magical tool. If you like fresh sliced or wedged pineapple there is no other way to go. And the juice that is left in the shell is so fresh and perfect for a cocktail or smoothie. But, if you don’t have this awesome gadget there is always this method: How to Select and Cut a Pineapple.

Now it’s time for me to make a pineapple cocktail in a hollowed-out pineapple and pretend to be somewhere tropical.
