Pineapple is a delicious, refreshing and healthy tropical fruit which is available throughout the year. You can buy it in a nearby store in your neighborhood or at the market. It is sold per piece and the price is usually around 2 dollars. It is used in many recipes and desserts, for example in pizzas, skewers on grill or in sauces, and pineapple juice is a part of many cocktails (Pina colada, Pineapple cocktail, Zombie, etc.).
But to enjoy the juicy fruit of pineapple you must first remove the hard pineapple peel and cut the pineapple. This sometimes can be a tiring job but pineapple corer can greatly help us and speed up this tedious process. Corers are usually made of stainless steel and come in different shapes for different uses to remove the core from fruit and vegetables. This kitchen tool is available on the market for ten dollars but there are also a professional cleaning appliances for pineapple worth over a thousand dollars.
With the pineapple corer we will quickly remove the middle, the juicy part of the pineapple, cut into fine and equal slices and the pineapple juice that will drain while using the corer we can drink it or use it in addition to some desserts or cocktails. A pineapple corer is a tall, arch-handled utensil with two serrated, concentric cutting rings at the base. The tool not only removes the core, but also the outer shell leaving pineapple rings.
After we have sliced off the top (this part is called „the crown“) and bottom of the pineapple with a knife we use the pineapple corer which we insert from the top in the middle of the pineapple and twist it like a screwdriver to the end and then we take it out. We get straight and spiral slices. The pineapple corer makes this job easier by slicing and coring at the same time. The entire procedure can be completed in less than a minute when we get into practice.
Carved pineapple in a shape of a glass can be used as a decoration – it can be used as a glass for cocktails or we can put fruit in it, strawberries for example, and serve it as a refreshing dessert with a slice of pineapple at the top and some whipped cream and champagne. Guests will certainly like this kind of decoration.
