    Lay the pineapple on its side, cut off the top and a slice off the bottom. Stand the pineapple up and cut downward slices all around to remove the peel. Lay the pineapple on its side again and cut into slices. With a sharp knife cut the core out of each slice. Now you have a ring. Do all the slices in this manner. You can save the peels to make BBQ sauce for ribs. Boil a few pieces of the peel with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup soya sauce, 1/2 tsp dry mustard about 1 cup of water and a bit of fresh ginger. Boil about half hour or until it reduces to about a cup of liquid. Strain. Use to brush on spare ribs.

    The easiest way, is to cut thru the whole thing, peel and all, then cut the peel away fromt he fleshy part and eat it. You can peel it whole but it is stickery and hard to do unless you have one of those fancy cutters that cuts fromt he top to the bottom in a complete circle. But I would just cut it in slices, or cut it in quarters, length wise, and serve with a knife and fork.
