How to: Cut a whole pineapple

You will need a sharp knife with a blade of at least 15cm/6" for safest and best results. 
I have used an IO Shen utility knife.

As a child I observed my (Indian) mum many times cutting up a pineapple, and thus I learnt how. 
This style of pineapple cutting apparently is quite well known in Asia. 
Unlike commercial methods, very little edible material is wasted.
1. Remove top
2. Shave away skin
3. Remove base
4. Make shallow V shaped cuts 
to remove the 'eyes', 2 or 3 at a time.
Keep on cutting around the pineapple. 
The V shaped cuts should mostly connect up into channels all around it.

5. Cut up pineapple into slices.
6. For easy storage, cut slices into quarters, and cut off fibrous core from the corner
7. Most efficient packing suggestion in a square, 1L container.


Hey kids! Are you tired of breakfast being worth getting up for? Are you sick of hearing about the latest superfood being jacked up in price and availability because all of the hipsters are eating it? 
You need teff porridge!
Guaranteed to taste like last year's cardboard moving box after being soaked for 24 hours in a laundry bucket, even when doused in maple syrup. With a flavour like that it won't be on Instagram or at your local cafe anytime soon. 
It's good for what ails you.
