Today's cooking tip is how to cut a pineapple
but before we teach you that we're gonna talk about buying one. First, you need to pick a ripe one and the way to do that is to hold the head and pull one of the centre leaves if it comes out easy. that means its ready and ripe.

Then you get home you are gonna place it in the refridgerator and you're gonna turn it up side down. now the reason we do that is - at the bottom of the pineapple all the sugar settles. so when you turn it up side down all the sugar will run back to the fruit
Now once you have done that leave it in the fridge for probably about 30 minutes now you're ready to cut your pineapple.

Tools:
- A cutting board and a VERY sharp knife

**Important

The key of how to cut a perfect pineapple is you will need a VERY sharp knife not only the sharp knife will help make it easier but it also preventing your hands from putting to much pressure to the fruit that leave unwanted bruise looking mark on your pineapple.

2. Now on the side.. slices it as thinly as you can, a little bit at a time. Remember too thin is better than too thick because if you slice it too thin you can slices it again.

- Holding your knife firmly in 45 degree toward your body than slowly slice one above the eyes (of the pineapple) about 2-3 inches long.
