Cooking with pineapple may seem retro, but this tropical fruit is ripe for reappraisal: its zingy freshness can enliven many a recipe, from sauces to salads to tarts
One of the most popular fruits in most warm countries, the pineapple is rich in calcium, potassium and vitamins A, B and C.
1 pineapple worth of peels
1 litre of water
Honey or other sweetener of your choice
Sanitize the pineapple and peel it, discard the crown. Boil the peels in 1 litre of water for 40 minutes, adding additional water if necessary. Let it cool and then place the peels and mint leaves in a blender or food processor adding the water where the peels were cooked and blend it completely.
Strain through a sieve, sweeten to taste, add ice and enjoy.
