Remember I told you not to throw away the pineapple skins in the last post. Well here in Trinidad and the Caribbean, by extension, we like to boil the pineapple skin to make a wonderful juice, pineapple juice. It's simple enough to follow without really writing a recipe. The pictures are self explanatory.
Pineapple Juice Recipe
Cut the pineapple. Retain the skin of the pineapple. You will use this to make your juice. Put the skin in a pot, cover with water and bring to a boil.
Strain the water and set aside to cool.
When cooled, sweeten to taste and strain again before bottling the juice and refrigerating it. A Refreshing pineapple juice.
So you see, we don't waste anything, especially when it comes to food. After all, with inflation rising in the country we just can't afford to waste anything. With Christmas coming, I expect the prices of some foodstuff to raise even more. Chives are already $4.25 TT for one, so I've decided to plant a few because this is one seasoning I will need for some of the upcoming Christmas recipes. Anyhow, enjoy your pineapple juice and perhaps you could still use the skins to make compost. See you until next time. Bye!
