A ripe pineapple will have a golden color and a pineapple smell.

Use a knife with a serrated edge (like you use to cut crusty bread). Cut off the top and bottom first.

Then cut down each of the sides.

I cut straight down the sides so my pineapple is rather rectangular. (You can try to cut more to the form of the pineapple too).

Then cut off each of the sides around the core.

Throw away the core in your compost bucket and cut up the pineapple in strips or chunks. Five minutes later this pineapple was gone — very popular in our house.
