Trapped inside the thick and spiny flesh of a pineapple is a fruit filled with a delicious tropical flavor, vitamin C and bromelain. While the flesh of the fruit makes a delicious snack or dessert, a wonderful addition in salads and a flavorful garnish on ham, the spiny skin can provide a delicious beverage. Instead of tossing the skin into the garbage or composting pile, give it a boil and and reap its benefits.

Step 1

Rinse the pineapple under cool water to remove any dirt or debris on the skin. With the pineapple on a cutting board, use a serrated knife to remove the crown from the top of the pineapple. Then, starting from the top, follow the natural curve of the pineapple and cut away the skin. Set the skin aside and cut or save the pineapple flesh as desired.

Cut the slices of skin into smaller chunks and place them in a large pot. Add enough water to cover all skins. Place the pot on the stove over high heat and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium, cover the pot and allow the skins to simmer for at least 20 minutes.

Place a colander in a large bowl and pour in the contents of the pot to strain the liquid. Transfer the liquid into a large pitcher and let it cool to room temperature. Once cool, cover the pitcher and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
