If you decide to begin with fresh fruit instead of frozen, it can be a challenge when you are trying to cut prickly fruit like pineapple, but here are some steps on how to cut a pineapple. First, lay the pineapple on its side and while holding it down, slice the top and bottom off. Stand the pineapple up and carefully trim the skin from top to bottom.

Remove the dark spots called eyes with a small paring knife. Cut the pineapple in half from top to bottom. Then, cut each piece lengthwise again. You will have 4 pieces. Make sure to cut the core from each piece. Chop further into chunks.

Figuring out the ripeness of a fruit can be tricky, especially when they have different indicators. For example, a rounded watermelon with a large yellow spot on it means it is sweeter.

As for the mango, there are three ways to figure out its ripeness: the texture, the color, and the smell.

The texture should be soft, similar to a ripe avocado. For color, it should be mostly orange or yellow. If the smell of the mango is strong, it is ready for eating. If you are stuck with an unripe mango, cover it with a towel to speed up the process.
