This is the best way to slice a pineapple

Pineapple cut
It’s easy and beautiful. INSIDER/Kristen Griffin

Pineapple is a strange fruit. With its spiky exterior, inedible core, and unappetizing eyes, it’s easy to waste a lot of the tropical treat while cutting it.

However, we’ve found a way to maximise the meat, without resorting to purchasing pre cut pineapple at the store.

This spiraling method is easy to master, and the result is nothing short of beautiful.
