How to: Achieve Pretty Pineapple Rings


What's my trick, you ask?!  ......

A medicine cup!!
 (Please don't tell me this isn't anything new... I was quite impressed with myself!  I am not sure it is any easier than cutting it out manually, but sure does make some pretty pineapple rings!) 
When we have purchased pineapple in the past, it was always the pre-cut packaged kind.  Just the thought of buying a whole pineapple was exhausting!  Have you had that feeling?  1. I had no clue how to do it and 2. it just plain looked like a whole lotta work!  Well, you can imagine my dismay when my husband bought a whole pineapple a few weeks back! 

But, thank heavens for Google!  Yes, I did it!  I figured out how to cut a whole pineapple!  Since that first pineapple, we've bought several more...  I think it's safe to say that I am a Pineapple Cutter-Upper Queen!

Anyways... so here is how I use the medicine cup:

Chop off the top and bottom of your pineapple and slice off the skin.  

You'll need to make your pineapple slices about 1/2 inch thick--- any more and the medicine cup would be too much work! 
 Once you have cut your slices, just push the medicine cup into the center and... 

But pretty nifty don't you think?!  I thought so!

  1. Dropped by from UBP. One best cut for pineapples is what you did. Like - "fresh from the can". Got plenty here in Hawaii.

    1. Oh, so jealous! They probably taste even better when they aren't packaged up and shipped across the ocean! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. :) Yum, I'm always intimidated by whole pineapples but this looks so easy that I will have to give it a try! Thanks for sharing!

    1. It is wayyyy easier than I thought! Wouldn't purchase a pre-cut again! Thanks for stopping by : )

  3. Yes, I agree that's nifty! I like the taste of fresh pineapple, but had no idea how to make it actually pretty. I'm stopping over from the Thursday blog hop. Thanks for the tip!

  4. What a great idea! I am going to try that next time we have pineapple.

  5. Oh, I love this! 'cause I love pineapple! and now I'm pretty sure I love you!

    Stopping by to visit/ follow from the UBP. I'd love it if you visited us at The view from atop this wave is beautiful and would be even sweeter if you were on board. If you bring the little medicine cuppy I'll pick some pineapple to share. ;)


    1. Just stopped by and commented on those delicious looking marshmallows! Drooling! Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Well, even if it's not new, it certainly is to me!! What a great idea! Thanks for sharing. I've just read a few of your posts and I love your blog. I'm now your newest follower. Can't wait to read more.
