How to Core a Pineapple

Pineapple Cutting 101

How to Cut a Pineapple

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit

Pineapples (Ananas comosus) are best eaten fresh. It is easy to slice a pineapple at home rather than resorting to the pre-cut variety available in a can with additives and preservatives. Get fresh with a pineapple!


  1. Choose a good quality pineapple. Use your sense of smell - the pineapple must smell sweet and fresh. If you detect an odor that suggests fermentation or there is no sweetness present, skip that pineapple. Also avoid pineapples that are bruised or mushy to the touch.
  2. Place the pineapple on its side.
  3. Cut the crown and the stem off of the pineapple.
  4. Stand the pineapple up on one end. Slice the skin off from top to bottom. Leave as much flesh as possible remaining on the pineapple.
  5. Remove the eye spots. Eye spots are on a diagonal on the pineapple. Cut a V-shaped groove along the diagonal line and remove a set of eye spots each cut. The remaining flesh is ready for cutting now.
  6. Cut the pineapple. The type of cut depends on how you want to use the pineapple. You can choose from these cuts:
    • Cut pineapple circles. Simply cut the pineapple circle slices in a width suited for your needs. Core each circle slice after cutting.
    • Cut the pineapple into halves, then quarters for cubes or wedges. For each quarter, cut off the core that will be on its edge.

  7. Add the pineapple to your recipe or meal. It is delicious eaten as it is with nothing added or you can add yogurt, whipped cream, crushed nuts etc. Or use it to make pineapple upside-down cake, as an addition to a meat dish or as a decoration atop a dessert.

How-To File Change Permissions chmod and ftp gives a great tutorial on setting file permissions on Windows system.

In the UNIX/LINUX world we can just use 'chmod' to change the file permissions on a file with the standard ftp client.

Unfortunality, this is not so easy in the Windows world, for some reason M$ did not see it 'fit' to include CHMOD as a valid command in their ftp client.

But here are some free clients to help you get around that problem.

How to Embed Audio on

Ever have an audio file that you want to embed in a site?

Whether your just starting to blog, and/or podcast, you will eventually want to have one of those little audio players on your site, to allow people to listen easily.

One of the easy ways to do this is to use a little program called the "Pickle Player". The pickle player is a nice little app that alllows you to paste the location of your mp3 file and it gives you back some code to embed in your blog.

However, if you're on a blog this won't work. Wordpress does not allow the <embed> tag in posts, so instead you have to use a special wordpress code/tag as follows


This will produce the following player
