Pineapple Wine


I had gone for a pilgrimage to Velankanni for a few days. Missed you all so much…  Now that I am back, thought of posting a wine recipe which I am sure you all will love till the last drop! 😀  This wine is very easy to make.  It is made with Pineapple skin!  The advantage is that it is done in 10 to 15 days and is ready for consumption!  So next time you buy Pineapple, don’t throw away the skin 😆

p-wine1.jpgWhat you need

Skin of one pineapple

Sugar -1 3/4 cup

Cold water -1 1/2 cup

Egg white -1 beaten

Dry ginger -1/2″ piece

Cloves -3

Cinnamon -1″ piece

Dry yeast – 1/2 tsp

Warm water – 1/2 cup


Mix yeast with half a cup of warm water and keep aside. Take a Bharani or Ceramic jar and put all the ingredients into it. Add the yeast and mix well. Close the lid, cover it with a cloth and tie tightly with a string. Keep the jar in a dark place for 10 days. On the 11th day, strain the mixture through a muslin cloth. Do not squeeze. Pour the wine into a coloured bottle and close it tightly with cork. Place the bottle in a dark place till it is opened. The wine can be consumed after 4 days or from the 15th day onwards! Old beer bottles can be used for storing the wine. This recipe will yield about 650ml of wine. You can use the skin of 4 pineapples to make wine for Christmas and New Year 😛
