Start with a pineapple. Turn it on its side.

Cut the top off. A serrated knife is good for this.

And cut the bottom off. 

Turn it back upright.

Use your serrated knife to carefully carve the outside away, following the curve of the pineapple.

Continue until all of the outer peel is off. A little brown is still totally fine.

See all these dots? 

Start carving little diagonal lines out of the pineapple to take out all those dots (technically they’re called “eyes”) ...

... until they’re all gone.

Then cut the pineapple in half vertically

And then cut it into quarters.

Cut the top of each quarter off — it’s fibrous and tough to chew.

Then slice each quarter into chunks.

Beautiful!
