Picking a Ripe Pineapple:
Use your nose! Give that pineapple a big whiff. If the smell of sweet pineapple is coming thru it's thick spiny skin then you are in luck. You have found a nice ripe one.
Give it a little squeeze! If the fruit has a very tiny give and is not rock hard, then you are in business. This is a good one.
Take a good look! The fruit will change colors on the inside AND the outside as it ripens. If the outside has a nice yellow glow from top to bottom, you can bet the inside is nice and ripe. Just make sure the pineapple is not starting to turn orange. At that point it is over-ripe.
Give it a tug! Pull gently on the very top leaves of the pineapple. If the leaves pull out with very little effort, it's ready to go.
