How to Cut a Pineapple - as part of the expert series by GeoBeats.

I had like to present to you my best friend which is pineapple. Pineapple is a symbol of welcoming. Every time you go to the Caribbean and you walk in to a beautiful big hotel you will always notice they will have pineapples in the front. That means 'Welcome', traditionally. We were having a beautiful dinner with my brother and I saw how he was destroying a pineapple, how he was pealing and destroying the pineapple. So I would like to show you, for those of you who are like my brother, how to cut, peal and present a pineapple. First of all we have to know the body of the pineapple, as you see this is the cork or the hard part of the pineapple. You want that out. And this beautiful part, here, has to be the first one to go. And the bottom, allows you to sit the pineapple. Remove this.

And just go around but you want to make sure you take this out of here because it will kind of get in to your tongue. It makes it really uncomfortable. My grandma used to take this skin with water and marinate it for 3 or 4 weeks. And she used to get the most wonderful juice from it. Called Mabiq, for those Dominicans who are viewing this tape. And then the next part is to get this round, hard part of the pineapple. If I was doing it at my house I would just cut around but I want to make it easy so you can plate a nice pineapple for a nice party. So you get just the center of that. You can really feel it. This is hard, this is really juicy and tender. And then what we do is just slice, as thick as you want. This is perfect. We have a beautiful plate here. And we are going to present the pineapple so that it is nice. As you see it is a clean cut. It is beautiful when you are eating something that you can understand. And part of that has to do with how you treat the product. And there you are, a beautiful pineapple plate. Without destroying the look of it. Nice and yellow, fresh and juicy Pineapple.
