Pineapple Peel by dominique(f): 7:58pm On Apr 27, 2006
Do you know u can make pineapple juice from boiling the peels? Its very refreshing & i heard it is quite medicinal.
I made some juice earlier this month & i wasnt able to drink much (cos i was quite busy) & wen i decided to drink it after about 2 wks, it had compltely fermented! Since i was unsure if its not spoilt i decided to pour it away. Now i think i shudnt have cos i liked what i smelt.

Okay well, i've never heard of making juice with pineapple peels. The peels are the ones that itch right? Like when u rob em off on u, they make u itch. WHy would u wanna drink something like dat?
Re: Pineapple Peel by dominique(f): 9:20pm On Apr 27, 2006
Let me make myself clear. I boil the peel in water, sieve, then freeze. So i dont know what you are talking about when u mentioned itching. Plus i said i threw d fermented juice away though i liked what i smelt.

Pineapple drink from it's peel is one of the best wines I've ever tasted. It's so so nice that if people get to know this secret, pineapple peels will probably become more expensive than the whole.

To prepare:

Things you'll need:
pineapple skins
container
water
sugar
1 week

1. Place washed skins of one pineapple in a pot, add one liter and a half of water to it and boil for 30 minutes

2. Place the skins with the boiled water in a container.

3. Add sugar to your pineapple skins.

4. Seal your container and place underneath your sink or somewhere out of site

When you are done fermenting the pineapple skins strain the skins and
pieces and voila! you have a refreshing fermented pineapple drink!

Add water or ice to taste.

When I was 16, I got tipsy out of taking this drink because it was so sweet, I couldn't resist it.

Wish I'll get paid for this information! It's too sweet to be given out for free!!!

You definitely were high on the juice when u resurrected this thread cheesy

Seems this is going to be fun,wud try it this weekend.Sugar shld be optional right?
Re: Pineapple Peel by yimiton(f): 11:07am On Apr 07, 2011
@ ifyalways, lol. I wasn't high oh. I was looking for other ways of making fruit wines/drinks and I stumbles across this post. I was surprised that a lot of people didn't know about it.

Remember to
1. leave a little pineapple with the peels
2. sieve the drink to ensure that it's clean and healthy


U can also try lime and sprite if you love sour drinks.

It was served to me at Pataya (Thai restaurant) once and I got hooked.

To prepare:

1. Wash 2 limes
2. Cut them at the middle
3. Take out your orange squasher
4. squash the lime
5. Put some ice in a tall glass
6. Pour the sprite
7. Add the lime juice
8. Tune to your favorite DSTV station and enjoy your long glass of drink. I tell you, it's one of the most refreshing drinks ever!
Re: Pineapple Peel by Nobody: 4:58pm On Apr 07, 2011

What do u mean?clarify pls.

Did u add sugar "before" soaking or u want to know if u can substitute sugar with honey?

I don't eat sugar and I did not use honey either and it came out fine.Basically,addition of sugar,honey or any other sweetner should be just before consumption.

@Anngirl,not sure abt that but I guess its Ok,pineapple na pineapple.
