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!

Wow, thanks for sharing! That is such a creative idea, and to make use of something you would think to throw away!
Joie de vivre
Oooh, that looks lovely. My parents live in Hawaii, I'll have to tell them about this juice.
Oh gosh boy Felix, you know de ting! 🙂 I love pineapple juice like this.
I have a pineapple in the fridge. Thanks for the great idea. I'm going to give it a go.
Excellent! Thank you for this - I just carved the fruit out of a pineapple and looked at the skins and thought "waste not want not, better see what the internet says about using the skins to make a juice."
I googled Howto boil pineapple skins because my sister just told me a friend lost 25 lbs just by drinking this, can this be true? Does any body know or has anyone tried it for weightloss with success?
