Freezing Pineapple


How do I successfully freeze fresh pineaple?
We just received three ripe, delicious pineapples and certainly can't eat them quickly enough. I'll give one away, but would like to freeze one for later.

Here are two methods I've found... I personally can't vouch for either though:

Unsweetened pack
Pack fruit tightly into containers without sugar. Leave
1/2 inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.

Syrup pack
Pack fruit tightly into containers. Cover with 50-
percent syrup (1 cup water to 1 cup sugar) made with
pineapple juice, if available, or with water. Leave 1/2
inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.

Thanks for the link, Rainee. I'm going to have to bookmark Iowa State ... they have a LOT of good information!
