Woman's Unusual Pineapple Cutting Technique Amazes Facebook Users

A woman has shown off her strange but incredibly effective method of cutting up pineapples to people on Facebook, and they have been queuing up to find out how she did it.

Not only does it look cool, it also looks like it would massively reduce waste in comparison to the way most of us would think to do it.

After it's done, the inside of the pineapple has a cool spiral shape to it, and there is so much less of the juicy flesh that ends up on the cutting board.

The method is actually not that uncommon in Southeast Asia, and is definitely the best way to get the most out of your pineapple.

Let's face it, we'd probably all eat more pineapple if it wasn't such a pain in the a**e to cut up.

The woman shared a picture of her handiwork on Facebook, writing: "This is how I peel my pineapple. My mother-in-law thought I had a special machine."

The photo received loads of comments, with some asking for her technique to be revealed, but others asking her to simply come to their house and do it for them.

One such person wrote: "Can you peel mine? I would definitely lose at least one finger trying to do that!"

Come on, it's not that difficult to do.

Speaking of which, if you want to do it for yourself, here's how.

First off, you need to trim off the outside. Cut off the ends, then stand it up and trim off the outer skin, not worrying too much if you don't get all the eyes out.

Then, to sort out the remaining eyes, you need to look for a spiral pattern around them, then get a sharp knife and cut at approximately 45 degree angles to make wedges and remove the lines of eyes.

You'll need to cut one side, then the other, to achieve this.

Once you've done one row, just spin the pineapple around and repeat the process.

As you cut through the rows of eyes, keep the spiral pattern going. If the line of eyes disappears, start a new one or merge two of them.

Once all that is done, just cut the pineapple up, remove the core, and store it however you like.

That should have you cutting pineapple like a pro.

Under the original Facebook post, another person commented: "I learnt that way when I lived in Thailand. Still always cut it like this."

Another said: "I now wish I had checked social media today, before peeling a pineapple earlier. I love this, have never seen it before."

Well, now you know. You need never waste pineapple through slack cutting again.
