Ingredients
peel of 1 pineapple
4 cups water boiled and cooled
1 and 1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar*
4 cloves
1 inch Cinnamon
1/2 tsp instant yeast
1 egg white lightly beaten (i didn't use)

Method

  • Wash the pineapple well ,then cut the peel with a peeler 
  • Discard the crown
  • We just need the peel
  • Take  a glass jar or a bharni/ceramic pot  and add water sugar,yeast  peel and core
  • Stir and cover the jar with a cloth and loosely put the lid
  • Keep it undisturbed for 3 days
  • On the 3rd/ third day strain the mixture,you will get a strong yeast/fermented smell this indicates the wine is brewing.
  • Use a strainer and line it with muslin then Strain the liquid discard the peel etc
  • Add clove and cinnamon to the strained liquid and put the liquid back in the ceramic jar and cover the jar with a lid and place a cloth over it and tie it with a piece of cloth/string.
  • Keep it in clean dry place for 10days
  • the wine is ready to consume after 10 days its time to decant the wine,you can pour the wine in clean sterilised bottles and enjoy it right away or
  • You can keep it for longer ,the longer it stays the better it tastes.




notes
  • Wash the pineapple before peeling it.
  • Use clean sterilised bottles/glass jar
  • I use a 4 litre bharni to make this and i wash it well and sun dry it well.
  • Wipe the ceramic jar/bharni clean and dry before you mix in the wine .
  • Preferably use a wooden spoon to mix the wine on the first day when you stir the ingredients.
  • Keep the jar/bharni in clean dry place
  • *I have adjusted the sugar and water according to my experience after trying the original recipes,if the pineapple is too sweet 1 and 1/2 cup is perfect if its less sweet you can increase the sugar to 1 3/4 to 2 cups or 3 cups add 1 1/2 cup on the first day ,taste it on the third day when you strain the peel if its less sweet you can add at this time .
  • The liquid will look cloudy as we are not using egg white ,you can add it for a clearer liquid
  • I have never used egg whites the liquid gets clearer as time passes by ,you can add beaten egg white while mixing the peel and other ingredients.
  • this yields around 1 litre
