Fresh Cut Pineapple

I am not a big fan of a lot of gadgets in the kitchen.  Over the years I have found that you can do the same things by hand in the same amount of time as it takes you to use a gadget.  However, I have found this gadget that has become very useful in my kitchen.  It is a pineapple wedger.  It is sold by Pampered Chef.

This wedger removes the outer layer of skin and removes the core all in one easy step.  The way the outside skin is removed you don't lose a lot of the pineapple, so there is less waste. Why buy canned pineapple when you can have fresh in a very short period of time.

The Pineapple Wedger 

 Cut the top and the bottom off of the pineapple
You can save the top of the pineapple and plant it into dirt (with the green part above the dirt) 
and you can grow a houseplant.

Place the wedger onto the pineapple.  Rock wedger back and forth slightly as you push down.

 The outer skin is removed and the pineapple is put into 2 halves, with the core removed.

Slice the sections into bite size pieces.

The wedger is dishwasher safe and comes with a cover to protect the blades.
