Taking to the blog today to share my tips for how I easily cut pineapple, because, next to the banana, pineapples are America's favorite tropical fruit. And for a good reason – they are the perfect blend of sweet and sour, and are so juicy!

When you head to the store, look for these 3 things to ensure your pineapple is ripe:
1. Your pineapple is plump, firm and fresh looking, with healthy leaves.
2. Your pineapple smells sweet and fresh.
3. Your pineapple can be ripe when it's all green. It can also be ripe when it's all yellow. However, your pinapple will not ripen any further sitting on your counter top. They quit ripening as soon as they are picked.
