Fall is here, and what better way to enjoy this beautiful weather than with a refreshing homemade pineapple juice!
My mom and grandma have been making their own version of pineapple juice, called Fresco de Piña, for as long as I can remember. It's not your typical pineapple though.
This recipe calls for the pineapple skin and core, not the actual fruit. These parts of the pineapple are filled with so many nutrients and are a great way to use the leftovers of the fruit that you would normally just throw away.
• 1 Whole Pineapple
• 14-16 Cups of Water
• 2.5 oz Cinnamon Sticks
• 10-12 Cloves
• 1 Apple
• 1 packet Emergen-C® Super Orange per 6 ounce glass
1. Wash Pineapple
2. Cut pineapple skin
3. Cut pineapple in half and cut out the core
4. Peel apple skin
5. Bring water with cinnamon and cloves to a boil
6. Add the core, pineapple and apple skin to the boiling water.
7. Boil ingredients, partly covered, for about an hour, stirring occasionally
8. Let water cool down, then strain
9. Add 1 packet Emergen-C® Super Orange per 6 ounce glass. Drink room temperature or cold
Bring the spices and water up to a boil. Then add fruit, and let it boil for about an hour.
This Fresco de Piña is the perfect recipe for this time of year and a nice twist to your typical store bought pineapple juice.
