You’ve Been Peeling Pineapples All Wrong (and So Have We)

We had no idea this method of peeling pineapples even existed


This guy just took pineapple peeling to whole new level.

If like us, you’ve spent countless hours (or half-hours, maybe) of the summer season cutting the skin off pineapples and then cutting even further, or carefully removing the leftover “eyes” of the pineapple flesh, this video is about to blow your mind.

Even if it doesn’t, the information you’re about to take in will be extremely valuable to you and anyone else you know who is a fan of pineapple-related creations, like tropical cocktails, pineapple upside-down cake, fruit salad, and any number of pineapple glaze recipes for your holiday ham.

There are plenty of reasons you might like to peel and cut a whole pineapple, and this fruit vendor with the knife skills of a wizard was kind enough to let his talents be recorded. By the looks of things, this method takes an incredible amount of physical dexterity and a very sharp knife.

We don’t recommend trying this at home unless you have the proper training, and even then, proceed with extreme caution.
