Jim Davis: Hi! I'm Jim Davis for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you now how to slice a pineapple. First, we're going to cut off the top just like that. We might want to keep that for a garnish later on.
If we're going to use this for a big garnish for a big fruit bowl, you cut off a slice just like this. Then, you take a cutter, cookie cutter and you cut out the core. There you have a beautiful slice of pineapple for the garnish on a big dish of fruit salad.
I will peel the pineapple, and show you then how to slices from the peeled pineapple. I've just finished now peeling our pineapple. We've got a beautiful ripe golden pineapple. We want to slice it about a half an inch thick, just like that. Nice, thick slices. Put those down, take a cookie cutter, a round cookie cutter and just punch out the core. Now look at that.
That's how you slice a pineapple. Won't sound it's really good? Merge it with maple syrup and grill it on your grill outside.
