You couldn't resist the promotion and ended up buying a lot of pineapples. But many will spoil if you don't freeze them. But how to freeze them then? Read the steps below and find out.
Part 1 of 2: Freezing the Pineapple
Step 1. Cut the pineapple
First, remove the crown and base with a sharp knife, peel the pineapple and then cut off what is left. You can cut the pineapple into slices, or into squares.
Step 2. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet
Make sure the sheet is big enough to cover the entire pan and hold all the pieces of pineapple.
Step 3. Place the cut pieces of pineapple on the parchment paper
Make sure the pieces don't touch each other or they will be frozen and stuck together.
Step 4. Place the baking sheet with the pineapple pieces in the fridge freezer to stay overnight
Step 5. Place the frozen pineapple pieces in a plastic bag or other airtight container
Make sure you get all the air out of the plastic bag so the pineapple pieces don't get frostbite. Write the date on the plastic bag so you know how long the pineapple can still be consumed. Frozen pineapple can last up to 6 months.
Part 2 of 2: Eating Frozen Pineapple
Step 1. Use frozen pineapple in a juice, shake or frozen drink
Just put the pineapple in a blender, follow the drink recipe and enjoy. Remember not to add too much ice, as frozen pineapple will add that icy texture to the drink.
Step 2. Eat the pineapple
Take it out of the freezer and take a bite of the fruit. Frozen fruits are delicious and you can do the same as you did with pineapple with blueberries, raspberries or any other fruit you want.
Step 3. Thaw the pineapple
If you want to eat the pineapple, but not frozen, just take it out of the freezer and eat it. Try to sprinkle the pineapple with a little lemon juice. You can also use pineapple for a fruit salad.
