Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Drying 3 hours
Servings 24 flowers


  • Chef's knife
  • Potato peeler
  • Paper towels
  • Baking sheet
  • Cupcake Tin
  • Silicone baking mat


  • 1 medium pineapple not too ripe


  • Preheat your oven to 225 degrees F.
  • Using a sharp chef's knife, cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple.
  • Place the pineapple upright, and cut off the rind in strips, working your way around the pineapple.
  • With the sharp end of a potato peeler, remove the eyes of the pineapple, saving as much flesh as you can.
  • With the pineapple on its side, cut thin slices. The thinner you can get, the more delicate your flowers will be.
  • Place the pineapple slices on paper towels and pat dry to remove excess moisture.
  • Place the pineapple slices onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat and bake for 90 minutes, or until browned on the edges.
  • While the slices are still warm and pliable, remove the pineapple flowers from the baking sheet and place them into a cupcake tin to cool completely.
  • Let cool overnight on the countertop for best results.
  • Store in an airtight container on the countertop up to 3 days.
