Pineapples always provide a stunning addition to a fruit basket or bowl, but many find actually serving them a bit more complicated. DaveHax has produced a video showing an easy yet elegant presentation for serving fresh pineapple. Best of all, it takes the hard work of coring out of the game.
The technique requires a very sturdy and sharp knife, as pineapples are notoriously thick-skinned. The trick is quartering the pineapple with just two long cuts that then make the pineapple more manageable. The result is bite-size pieces ready for the table.

According to Modern Notion, the one-time scarcity of pineapples made it a sign of extravagance, entertaining and hospitality. According to the article, people were so desperate to use the fruit as a status symbol, they would actually rent them as decorations but keep the fruit on display and off people's plates.
Now that pineapples are much more common, they should be on your table, to eat, more often. Not only is the sweet taste hard for guests to resist, but there are also many health benefits. According to Organic Facts, pineapples are filled with vitamins B and C, as well as beta-carotene, calcium and magnesium. The high vitamin C count makes it an excellent boost for your immune system, especially when you're compromised by something like a pesky cold. The anti-inflammatory properties of the fruit also make it popular among those suffering from arthritis.
