Pineapple bowl or pineapple bowl The skin of the pineapple can easily be carved into a bowl to serve the meal of your choice.

Fresh pineapple skin is usually thrown away but in countries like Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, it is turned into a bowl.

If the crown of the pineapple is still fresh, you can leave it intact with the fruit. I'd removed the crown in the video as it was already dry. Having the crown together surely makes the dish look even more beautiful.

Why Should I Make My Own Pineapple Bowl?
