Here's a tip you may be able to use. I love to eat fresh pineapple. But because there's just the two of us, we have trouble getting it all eaten before it goes bad. So after I cut it all up into spears or chunks, I bag it into a big gallon size freezer bag and lay it out flat in the freezer. That way I can break it apart later and use a little or alot depending on what my need is. It tastes GREAT out of the freezer! Sometimes I take out just a few chunks and cut them up as a topping for Hawaiian pizzas, and sometimes I grab a cupful or so for a fresh fruit salad. So easy!
