Guess what? I forgot to take the picture of the finished recipe…. but you’ll get the idea. It looks sort of like yellow iced tea. It is a translucent, sweet, yet tart pineapply refreshing beverage you can make by using your pineapple’s rind next time you get your hands on one. Instead of throwing it away after you have peeled and cut your pineapple, you can make this.
