This instructional video will show you how to peel and cut a pineapple. Follow these steps to peel and cut a pineapple: Cut off the top and bottom. Start cutting the skin off the pineapple, by sliding your knife in behind the seeds, and cutting down. Repeat this step until the pineapple is peeled. Now you need to get rid of the core. Make four cuts directly against the core. Slice the remaining pineapple chinks as preferred.
