COOK'S TIPS To peel fresh pineapple, grasp the leaves and, using a sharp knife, slice peel off lengthwise in wide strips, shaving off just enough to reveal the 'eyes'. Following the diagonal lines of the eyes, cut narrow grooves to remove them. Alternatively, cut the eyes out individually with the tip of a small, sharp knife.
