Co-host Janelle Wang learned the secret to cutting the perfect pineapple on a recent trip to Hawaii.


  1. To check if the pineapple is ripe, pull one of its green stems. If it comes out easily, it's ready to eat. If not, wait a couple more days.

  2. Use the sharpest knife.

  3. Cut the pineapple in half. Then take the knife to the edges and cut out the corners and remove from the skin.

  4. Cut pineapple into about 1/2 inch slices and enjoy!
