Hawaii has long been known for its wonderful pineapples. Everyone coming to Hawaii will no doubt end up at a Farmer’s Market and one of the most popular fruits purchased is a fresh pineapple. If you have never bought pineapple outside of a can, you may wonder how to core a pineapple.
Here is a video on how to core your own pineapple. Please use care when doing this and remember this demonstration is done by a professional chef who has done it many times before. So, if this is your first time, go a bit slower until you get the hang of it.
If you are coming to Kauai, here is a list of the locations and times of our Farmer’s Markets. Try to visit one. You will be rewarded with fresh fruits, vegetables, and arm loads of tropical flowers—all at prices you can’t resist.
