Pineapples

I love pineapples but I'm always too lazy to cut it. My husband likes to buy a pineapple for prayers every two weeks. When it gets over-ripe, I would usually throw it away. Sometimes, I would give it to my workers. If my mum is around, she would cut it and put the pieces in the fridge. She loves pineapple too. But I don't eat as I don't like plain fresh pineapple. I prefer it with sauce as in rojak. 

Recently, I visited Kay's blog about cutting a pineapple. Her method was so easy so this morning I made it a point to cut my pineapple..

here's a big ripe pineapple

cut off the crown and the base

cut it into 4 pieces

peeled the skin away

sliced off the cores too

cut them into pieces

I just stir-fried some of them with garlic, prawns and Maggi chilli sauce.

I practically finished the whole plate with some rice.

The rest of the freshly cut pineapple pieces were given to my worker.


Pineapple fruit contains a proteolytic enzyme bromelain that digests food by breaking down protein. Bromelain also has anti-inflammatory, anti-clotting and anti-cancer properties. Studies have shown that consumption of pineapple regularly helps fight against arthritis, indigestion and worm infestation.

  3. Thank you for the link and mention, Wenn. Don't forget that if you twist the crown off you can plant it and grow another pineapple.

    1. Not many men like pineapple like we do. Bananaz loves pineapple too and even more on the cutting especially in the old slanting way of getting rid of the 'eyes'. Yummy

    2. cutting the eyes in a slanting way takes time. So I omitted that, just cut straight.

  5. You really gave me a new recipe too! I often buy canned pineapple to eat because I am lazy to cut them. I wanted to order the slicer from Dealmates online but they are not advertised anymore! I hope it will come back soon!

  21. For praying, we usually don't choose too ripe one. Green one the better and let it ripe day by day. Eventually you can smell the pineapple fragrant...

  24. Very cool way of removing the skin. Didn't know it could be don't that way with pineapples. I do that with dragon fruits.
