Pineapple Peel Vinegar
Recipe: Ingredients: Peel and core of one pineapple 1/4 cup honey 3 + cups water Instructions: Scrub pineapple with a vegetable brush and rinse. Twist leaf bundle to remove the leaves (plant as a lovely house plant!) Peel and core the pineapple, reserving the flesh for other uses. Chopped peel and core into one inch chunks. In a clean 2 quart container (glass, plastic, crock) add pineapple peel, core, honey and enough water to cover, around 3 cups or so. Stir to dissolve honey. Cover container with cheesecloth and place is a cool dark location for 2-3 weeks, stirring daily. Mixture should start to bubble within a few days. If mold starts to form on the surface, just skim it off and discard. Once bubbling totally stops, strain liquid through a mesh strainer to remove large solids. Then strain again through a paper towel or fine cheese cloth to reduce cloudiness. Bottle vinegar in sterilized jars. Vinegar will clear the longer it settles. Enjoy!
