Why scrub? Don't you peel the skin anyway. Looks well riped, I love fresh Pineapple. My mom add salt and pepper to pieces, tastes good!:)
Did you cut it like Jai does?
I agree with Asha. Why scrub and that too with a toothbrush? Never pegged you for the obsessive type!
Pics looks gud and the pineapple looks ripe..
Asha, this is only the second time I'm handling a pineapple :) I destructed it (sounds so much better than destroyed) the first time - cut it in several ways, this time I cut in Jai's way. Well, some of it - the rest is in the fridge.Shankari, yeah, I find it practical, esp as I know no other way and have always been intimidated by it and so never tried. Do note my reply to Asha!Jaya, I am very obsessive about cleanliness - when I had a cook for a brief two years, I'd examine her nails.Priti, thanks! It's not all that sweet though I waited a few days, and the base had begun to blacken when I cut it today.
LOL@examining your cook's nails! I understand the scrubbing part, I sometimes scrub tomatoes and other conventionally grown veggies with with diluted dish soap or a vinegar/baking soda solution. The pineapple looks really fresh, how did it taste?Mamatha
It was at that stage where it was neither tart nor sweet. There was a blackened portion which tasted like tinned pineapple - kind of astounding!
That sounds like something I'd do... scrubbing a pineapple with a toothbrush.. Now, what is the Jai method of cutting pineapple? What did I miss?
Jai method of cutting.. Please share it :)
Mamatha, it was not sweet, quite flat.Sig, Rachel, take a paring knife and cut around each side of the penta-/hexagonal eye. Go quite deep and you come up with a bite-sized piece of pineapple attached to the eye. As you keep going, you won't need to cut around all the sides, but just score on one side, poke around two other sides and dislodge pieces. It's on their web site - Jugalbandi.
