One fresh pineapple

Directions:
Directions:
Look at the pineapple. It should be brightly colored, with fresh-looking, deep-green leaves. Avoid pineapples with bruises, brown leaves or moldy spots. Smell the pineapple. It should have a sweet, pineapple smell at the stem end of the fruit. Pick up and touch the pineapple. It should be plump and heavy for its size. The surface should give slightly when you push on it, but there should be no large, soft spots that cave in under your touch. To cut pineapple into chunks, twist off the crown; then slice the pineapple lengthwise into quarters. Cut away the shell from each quarter; then remove the core strip from the top. Slice into chunks. A pineapple corer can help you to cut a pineapple into rings while preserving a hollowed-out pineapple shell to use for decoration or fill with a beverage.
