Cut your melon in half. If this were a cantaloupe or other melon then you'll want to scrape out the seeds at this point.
Ta da! A simple beautiful bowl of cut melon.
And now for your delicious fresh pineapple (great raw or grilled... mmmmm)
First you chop the top off, then using a serrated bread knife, cut the pineapple into halves, then fourths, then eighths.
Next, using the same knife, slice the skin away. It's easiest if you don't slice all the way through the end, leaving something to hold onto. Leave enough skin that you avoid the eyes (the pineapple's eyes, not your own... LOL, although you should probably avoid those too!). Then you cut away the core, slicing all the way through the end you had left.
Serve as spears or cut into cubes... enjoy!
