A Slice of Pineapple Heaven

Fresh, ripe pineapple adds a hint of tropical pizazz to a variety of dishes. From creamy fruit smoothies, to flavorful grilled fruit, pineapple is a welcome addition to any summer menu.

Since pineapple isn’t exactly native to Western Kentucky, you might enjoy some tips on how to select a ripe fruit. First, the crown of the pineapple should be bright green. Next, the skin should yield to slight pressure when touched. Lastly, give the base a sniff. Yeah, you heard us right. Your pineapple should smell like…well…a pineapple!

Once you’ve selected your fruit, you might be at a loss as to how to slice that bad boy. It is completely doable, but it can be a little tricky. You’ll remove the ends of the pineapple with a sharp knife. Then place the fruit on its end and cut the skin away, slicing from top to bottom. Use a paring knife to remove any remaining “eyes.” Now you’re ready to slice it into quarters in order to remove the core.

Better yet, the next time you buy a pineapple at Midtown Market let us do the dirty work! It only takes a minute and doesn’t cost you a dime. We’ll slice fresh, delicious pineapple rings or pineapple chunks, so that you can enjoy the taste of sweet pineapple without having to do any hard work. 

We’ll also slice your watermelons! So kick your feet up and enjoy one of the many luxuries that come with shopping at Midtown Market.
