Baby pineapple is a small variety of pineapple. Its appearance and flavor is similar to a large pineapple. Baby pineapples have delicious sweet flesh inside and in contrast to an ordinary pineapple, the center of a baby pineapple is also soft and sweet and edible! Pineapple is a good source of dietary fiber and vitamin C, as well as some iron and calcium. The pineapple’s core contains high levels of an enzyme called bromelain, which is said to be an effective anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxant, and digestive aid.
Baby pineapples can be cooked just as regular pineapples, but are delicious eaten raw. How to cut a pineapple: Remove off the top and cut off the base then stand the baby pineapple upright and slice away the skin in a downward vertical motion along the curves. The core can be left in or removed depending on preference, though it is edible, and can even be pressed for juice. Fresh pineapple can be roasted, grilled, or even baked for desserts.
