Some revelations that we find out as adults can be life-changing.
Moreover, the most important and valuable thing we learn in times like these is the fact that there is always another way. An easier way of doing everything. Even the things that look pretty ordinary to us, too.
Did you know that you might have been doing pineapple wrong?
Well, sharpen your pencils, and start taking some notes. Let's learn something fun and new from the younger generations around us.
TikTok Challenges Can Be Educational Too
According to a recent TikTok challenge, we found out that we've been living in a lie for the whole time.
And while enjoying our stay in this deep hole of lies, most of us have not been opening or eating pineapple correctly. Why hadn't we noticed this by now?
We could've googled it for sure.
But Let's stop pretending, we're all the same here. Feel free to drop your jaws. Let yourself be shocked. It's all good.
And of course, there's nothing wrong or embarrassing with not knowing to do something right. As long as we're thirsty for learning something new, we're all good to go!
How To Slice A Pineapple Without Using A Knife
Before you do that eyebrow thing, hear me out.
When it comes to slicing pineapples, there is something that we need to improve.
No, no. Scratch that.
TikTok users explained that we don't have to slice the pineapple at all. Can you believe it?
Forget the big sharp knives. We don't and won't need them. All we need is our hands. Our two strong hands have been right in front of us, but who knew that pineapples could be prepared the old-fashioned way, huh?
Let's Do The Twist
First things first.
So, let's do it. Start with the crown of the pineapple and twist it off.
A fun fact that needs your attention: when you pull the pineapple's crown off, you can actually plant it and grow yourself a whole new pineapple.
If the quarantine time awakened the gardening pro in you, then give it a try and share the results!
But enough with the chit-chat. Let's get back to business.
The next thing you need to do is to loosen it up a little.
This might be the most entertaining step of all. To prepare the pineapple biters, you need to work your way and wiggle and jiggle on the kitchen countertop.
Imagine that the pineapple is a ball and hit it against the counter a few times. It could even bounce but keep it together, and you're one step away from wrapping this challenge up properly.
Just A Little Bit
The last thing you need to do is to roll the pineapple. A key thing in this step is to apply a lot of pressure to the pineapple. It will loosen up the fibers inside enough for the hack to work. Also, it will help a lot to get the juices flowing inside the pineapple.
So, roll it nice and tough. It might hurt a bit, but hey - you'll live.
In the end, it will be worth the effort. And you can be sure of it!
You made it. Now you deserve to treat yourself with a bunch of fresh biters of pineapple.
Wondering how to eat it?
Well, it's easy peasy lemon squeezy.
You need to just pull at the outside, and everything will come off in neat little bite-sized chunks!
What goes on TikTok becomes viral in a New York minute.
Many people tried this at home and believe it or not, some of them were not impressed at all.
Of course, a knife would do the same job and we all could agree.
But where's the fun and action in that?
Others were surprised that they felt brave enough to give it a try. At least, they confirmed that they had fun along the way. But did it work?
Unfortunately, it didn't. For most people that gave it a go, this didn't work.
But that isn't to say that the hack doesn't work at all — some people did find success with it, but the majority didn't.
Life Hacks Are Fantastic
However, an important note that you need to keep in mind if you want to try this at home would be to pick your pineapples wisely.
The most important thing is the ripeness of the pineapple. If it's not ripe enough, it'll be too stiff. And no amount of rolling will loosen it up. You'll end up torturing yourself.
It also might help if the pineapple isn't refrigerated beforehand.
Do you feel ready now to give it a try?
