How to Cut Pineapple Rings

Follow these simple steps to create perfect pineapple rings for grilling, desserts, and more. Grab a fresh pineapple, and let's start slicing!

Slice off the leafy crown and the bottom, each about a half inch to one inch into the pineapple rind.


Position upright, slice the rind off carefully, then trim the sides to achieve a round shape.


Cut half-inch thick slices across the pineapple until it’s all sliced.


Use a circle cookie cutter or a paring knife to remove the tough core from each slice.


Voila! Enjoy your fresh pineapple rings in a variety of tasty dishes.
