To begin preparing your pineapple for pineapple rings, lay the pineapple on its side on a cutting board. You will want to remove the plume of the pineapple from the fruit. Using a Chefs knife go ahead and cut straight down through the pineapple to remove the plume. Now go ahead and finish cutting the rings from the pineapple and you will want to make them about one half an inch thick. Continue all the way to the end of the pineapple. Once you have finished slicing your pineapple into rings, your going to want to remove the rind from the pineapple. Using a small paring knife, insert it just inside the rind of the pineapple slice and begin slicing all the way around until you come all the way through the rind. Then just simply lift it off the slice and you are ready to go. Once you have removed the rind from the pineapple rings, there will be some eyes left around the edges of the pineapple. Go ahead and use a paring knife and just slide it right under the eye to remove them. Once you have your pineapple sliced, the rind removed, and all of the eyes cut out of the slices, it is time to core the center from each ring. Use a corer, line it up to the center of the pineapple core and simply push down. Another way to do that if you do not have a corer is to use a paring knife. Lay your slice flat, insert the knife, right at the edge of the core and cut all the way around until the core is removed. Once you have created your pineapple rings, they are ready to use in your favorite recipes, to throw on the grill, or to simply eat fresh. For more information about pineapple, visit RecipeTips.com.
