It's what I tend to do when pineapple is cheap.

Use the corer. Just be a little careful not to go so far down that you break through the bottom of the pineapple. It will pull out the rings of fruit, but there will still be the actual core in the middle of the 'cup'. I take a knife and cut it out (looks better without).

Blend the fruit (using fresh pineapple is sooooo essential for a good pina colada!). Add in and blend cream of coconut.

At this point, if you've used all of the fruit and an appropriate amount of cream of coconut, you've got quite a bit of the pineapple/coconut mix (about 4-5 pineapple cups worth once you add in rum/ice). Remove half of mix, and refrigerate for later use (second batch).

With half the mix in the blender, add rum and ice. Blend together. Pour into pineapple cup (and you will have plenty left that can go into a regular cup for another person, or you can save it to refill the pineapple cup).

Add in a straw (I very highly recommend Boba straws for this), and any decorative touches you might be inclined towards.

I bring an apple and this slicer/corer for lunch every day. I really like the 16 slice model over the more common 8 slice as I think the smaller pieces are better bite size.

u/RedShinyButton · 44 pointsr/whatisthisthing

I think it is a jalapeno corer. Go make some poppers!

u/Mmocks · 32 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

This is the right answer. Get one of these
You'll eat way more apples this way.

Edit: fixed link

u/Don_Rummy586 · 29 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Here is an even better deal
But heck you might as well go all out for the complete kitchen gadgetry package. Impress all your friends

u/blatherer · 21 pointsr/shittyfoodporn

Do yourself a big favor and get one of these. I am pretty good with a knife but, over the next decade would will save your self a lot of time (father of 19 year old twins).

u/DeepMusing · 20 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

I had the same problem, and so I would rarely eat apples.

I finally bought an apple slicer, and that made all the difference. I started eating apples pretty regularly after that.

u/Gatorgirl007 · 17 pointsr/AmItheAsshole

I also don’t love single-use kitchen items but I use that and my apple corer/slicer everyday.

u/ccaptianawesomem1 · 13 pointsr/woahdude

Anyone know what this thing is called?

Edit: Found it.

u/morganmarz · 11 pointsr/Breadit

I used King Arthur Flour's recipe. Interestingly enough, i'm pretty sure that the photo on that page is not a kaiser roll. Here is what they typically look like.

So a couple of things here. I probably could have and should have proofed them another 15-30 minutes. They weren't quite as big as i think they should have been. I was in a bit of a rush to have them ready for dinner, though, so i just rolled with it. (please don't kill me)

I also didn't have a kaiser stamp, such as so. I used an apple slicer instead.

Also i totally meant to make the recipe at least 10% whole wheat but i totally forgot. Whoops.

EDIT: Sorry for summoning the Amazon price zombie. :(

EDIT2: TIL how to shape kaiser rolls 30 different ways

u/Blovnt · 7 pointsr/specializedtools

Canned pineapple?

No more.

Get yourself one of these pineapple cutting tools

You can spiral cut an entire pineapple, start to finish, in about two minutes. You'll never eat canned again.

u/ophelia917 · 7 pointsr/Cooking

Use an apple slicer. I like the 16 slice one (I have braces...the thinner pieces are better..probably good for a 2 yr old too!!) like this: (non-affiliate link)

When you take the apple out of the corer, reassemble it and snap a rubber band around it so none of the cut areas are exposed.

u/murphy38 · 6 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Let's do it in the kitchen!

One of these bad boys for easily just slicing and coring your apples in one move. Simple, elegant, effective.

It's what you want in a kitchen gadget

u/isreddit4real · 6 pointsr/whatisthisthing
u/RootsVerdes · 6 pointsr/Cooking

We grill pineapple a lot in the summer and this thing has been indispensable. Pretty easy to store too. And ridiculously cheap. Plus you can use the cored pineapple for a nice tropical drink!

u/ribo · 6 pointsr/gifs

amazon knockoff/clone and astroturfing review game is strong on this thing.

I went with the OXO one:

u/tncbbthositg · 5 pointsr/dontputyourdickinthat

Here it is on amazon in case you need one. Please just don’t put your dick in it.

u/Cyno01 · 5 pointsr/AskCulinary

Im a cook, when i was in culinary school, my in laws one year for christmas got me a bunch of random kitchen gadgets (and a really nice cutting board). Among them was a strawberry huller that i never thought id use, but it turns out it actually works really well.

And its great for tomatoes too, cherry tomatoes to be stuffed for hors doeuvres, or just the stem end of romas or globes before dicing/slicing. Yes you can do it with a pairing knife, but the gadget is quicker when youre doing a ton, same amount of things to wash.

u/owensjs · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

IMO, a better option than buying pre-sliced apples is to buy whatever apples happen to be on sale and buying an apple slicing tool like this one:

Where I live, sliced apples tend to be more expensive than a whole apple.

u/Jovet_Hunter · 5 pointsr/Canning

Don’t peel! The peel adds extra fiber and a lovely rose color. You don’t need a food mill; I used an immersion blender last year but the peels disintegrate quite well. A food processor or even blender or mixer would work. Unless you like your applesauce chunky, though, I’d recommend a food mill. That thing has made my canning a dream.

Do dump the cores and seeds, those are bitter and there’s no point to try and save those or cook down before milling. I’ve found just using a standard slicer-corer makes quick work and preserves most of my apple. I also use softer apples with less waxy skins that break down better.

I haven’t found a peeler that has worked with my counter system. I’ve considered models for my stand mixer or that attach to my table but I can’t justify the cost myself since we like the skin and don’t eat apple pie that much.

Good luck!

u/crbn_kllr · 5 pointsr/AskNYC

Head of iceberg on sale: $.99

Head of red cabbage: ~$2.50

3 Carrots to shred: $.50

Total cost: $3.99 for salad for dayzzzz

Salad spinners are for the same people who buy mango splitters and strawberry hullers. Get some paper towel if you need dry lettuce.

u/aftertheswimmingpool · 5 pointsr/AskCulinary

In addition to everything that people have said about effective storing, you could also invest in an apple slicer for really quick, consistent, minimal effort chopping.

u/clamsmasher · 5 pointsr/specializedtools

I have a wedge and pop apple slicer. It has an attached base with a hinge. You slice the apple with the base open and out of the way, when the blades push down as far as the can go you flip tell base around and push the blades down the last little bit. It totally separates the slices from the core.

It's super easy, my 4 year old kids use it. They eat a whole apple if I slice it like this, if I give them the apple without slicing it they eat a ring around th e apple then give up on it.

u/cactusgalaxy · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Thanks for this recipe! I don't know if you're aware but there are a couple of tools that make cutting up apples way easier. I use one like this . It doesn't peel them but I've seen fancier ones that do.

u/scottjl · 4 pointsr/pics

Do yourself a big favor, get a strawberry huller. You'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Really.

u/agaponka · 3 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I got one of these and it changed my apple slicing game forever :

u/drocks27 · 3 pointsr/GifRecipes

You can do it yourself or you can buy canned pineapple slices

u/murder508 · 3 pointsr/MealPrepSunday

very nice. do you have one of these ? so worth the money :)

u/sunflowerfly · 3 pointsr/recipes

We attended an event where participants were using old technology to perform everyday tasks. One area was dedicated to cooking. They were cooking Apple Butter over an open fire in big copper pots. One of the benefits they stated was the ease of processing a lot of apples fast. From memory (likely slightly off):

  • Rough chop entire whole apple. They used a slicer corer that does this in one motion. like this one
  • Boil the rough chop seeds and all. They said the core contained natural pectin.
  • Once soft, run through a sieve. They had a cone shaped sieve with a wooden tool to push the soft apples through the holes. Found one!
  • Boil for like 8 hours.
  • Eat or store.
u/Anonymous999 · 3 pointsr/LifeProTips
u/hasugertie · 3 pointsr/ketorecipes

I used an apple corer like this one:
And then I cut the cucumber into 3-4" pieces for easy de-coring

u/Ceadol · 3 pointsr/shutupandtakemymoney

Seriously. I can have an entire pineapple cored and sliced in to rings by the time he gets the top off of his, for a fraction of the cost. This is the most worthless product I've seen here.

Edit: I just saw the Tactical Short Shorts. I stand corrected. This is tied for the most worthless product I've seen on this sub.

u/dizzylynn · 2 pointsr/randomactsofamazon

This little adorable ball of fluff is Azrael:

My mom hates cats. Really, she's just not an animal person... I love her despite her flaws. :)

Anyhow, when I lost my job and had to move in with her, she relented about bringing my kitty after much begging my me and my children.

When I got a job and was able to move out, she sat me down and had a 'talk' with me about how it wasn't fair to take Azzie away from the home where she could go outside as I would have to put her into an apartment and make her an indoor kitty. Mom said she could 'tolerate' dealing with the cat since she was outdoors part time.

Mom forgot to mention that it was because they'd grown used to sleeping all cuddled up and cozy.

Mom loves my her cat.

EDIT: Oh yeah. This is $1.29 but has shipping... if I were to win, I would totally pay for the shipping on it if I got a gift card. :)

this strawberry huller is really useful. i dont use it as often as I should, but when I do it really saves time.

u/evilted · 2 pointsr/cocktails

For those of us that like to drink out of pineapples (it makes the neighbors jealous), this corer is an indispensable tool.

u/Cupcake_Kat · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Since I am new here, how do I make my links as cool as all of yours? All I gots is

"It's too quiet in here!"

u/-Miss_Information- · 2 pointsr/funny
u/Chantey · 2 pointsr/food

I use one of these. Well worth the $5-10.

u/BecauseSometimesY · 2 pointsr/cocktails

Looks fantastic, and your pineapple coring skills are pretty on point! With that said, I have a recommendation: OXO Pineapple Corer on Amazon for $10. They work AMAZING!

u/Shibshibsharoo · 2 pointsr/Homebrewing

Apple Slicer $8 right now. Can get a few them and put the wife and/or kids to work. French fry cutter would work too I bet, looks like about $60 for that.

u/PenguinsGoMeow · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

<3 This would be something I have always wanted. I love fresh pineapple and never have a way to cut it!

I had originally put a pencil sharpener on here, but that is no longer needed. :)

u/bellyjabies · 2 pointsr/CasualUK

Protip: Long thumb nails are great for hulling strawberries, and save you a few quid.

u/PositivePostman · 2 pointsr/USPS
u/Ironicshoes · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would love to say any of the 430 ebooks on my $5-$10 ebook list but those are very specifically to my tastes. I will have to go with this apple corer and divider. It makes cutting up apples so much easier!

u/delerium23 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

400 gifts! that is amazing, YOU are amazing!

this is awesome and under $5 or pick whatever makes you happy!! <3

Anndddd .. I just bought one on Amazon after watching this lol

u/doombubble · 1 pointr/recipes

I use this applesauce recipe and it's delish, especially if served right away and it's still a bit warm!

I use one of these devices to cut and core my apples, and my food processor is great and really blends it up well, so I keep most of the skins on and can't tell a difference in the end product.

u/clynnec01 · 1 pointr/cocktails

You can get a pineapple corer for relatively cheap - core the pineapple in a big bowl and let the chunks sit for a few hours, you'll be surprised how much juice they render - plus you now have a cored pineapple to serve drinks in ;)

u/brightlights55 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

I've got something similar to this at home and it works brilliantly.

u/Aerrowae · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I bet you did great! Sometimes when we think we have failed, we have really passed with flying colors or at least close! So keep your chin up and smile!

Tomato/Strawberry corer This would make my life so much easier and I'd be wasting less food! I eat a lot of tomatoes and strawberries! I cut up my strawberries and freeze them for smoothies! This item would make it so that I can easily take out the leaves instead of cutting off the entire end and wasting yummy strawberries!

u/KatelynnPwnz · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thanks for the contest!

u/Pullet · 1 pointr/Hawaii

Buy this. The plastic version works just as good.

u/seraph582 · 1 pointr/oddlysatisfying

Huuuuuge waste of time. Get the thing that you push down on to the top and it cores and wedges the Apple in one maneuver. It also doesn’t peel off tons and tons of the fruit under the skin like OP’s misconfigured spiral thing.

u/SpagNMeatball · 1 pointr/biggreenegg

They look great.

This is personal preference, but I do mine a little different.

  1. Cut off the top, Core and de-seed the peppers. There is a tool you can buy to help.
  2. Cook Chorizo, bacon or other sausage in frying pan.
  3. Mix #2 with cream cheese
  4. Stuff peppers with #3 mix
  5. Wrap bacon around pepper and over the top. Secure with toothpick
  6. Dust with your favorite BBQ rub
  7. Egg it.

    Your method yields twice and many items, But I like having the whole pepper for flavor. My way can be flipped over to crisp up the bacon.
u/Flying00Fiddle · 1 pointr/fatlogic

If you aren't someplace oversensitive to pocket knives, cut it up right before you eat it. I keep a mini cutting board in my lunchbag for this exact purpose.

Edit: If a knife isn't an option, something like this apple slicer might work.

u/Smartierpantss · 1 pointr/DidntKnowIWantedThat

Same Concept, $15

I use it at least once every fall for a bushel of apples and it’s wonderful.

u/dragosmore · 1 pointr/Baking

Oh wow, you probably don't need anything that specific. I use their general Apple Corer for -so- much, including coring apples!

Also good for strawberries too if you fill them with whipped cream

u/Flitch1 · 1 pointr/Cooking

I think /u/Hypno-phile has the right idea. Peel a long thin potato then use one of these on it lengthwise

u/livelearndiee · 1 pointr/tifu
u/Aevum1 · 1 pointr/food

I would roast them whole and then use one of these.

You cant do it when they are raw becuase the inside will dry out and wont be as fluffy but if you wait till they are fully cooked they might be too fragile to properly cut them without mashing them, it must be done in a half way point.

As for the garlic butter, theres tons of recipies around

heres one

u/erixxi · 1 pointr/xxfitness

Sliced apple with peanut butter! You can buy pre-sliced apples at most grocery stores, or you can buy an apple slicer (most grocery stores sell them) and slice it yourself. You don't have to refrigerate apples, so you don't have to worry about them taking up fridge space. I slice mine in the morning and pack them in a reusable food container.
