Last time, we went over how to cut a pineapple. Now, the question is - what should you do with those pineapple skins and core? Sure, you could trash or compost them, but wouldn't it be nice to use them somehow first? Well, here's your solution! Make pineapple vinegar! And if you really want to compost or trash it, you still can - after making this pineapple vinegar. :)

Why would you want to make vinegar? Well, it's a great base for a vinaigrette or marinade - tangy and sour, as you'd expect from a vinegar, but with a bit of pineapple. In addition to all that, you're combining the anti-inflammatory and digestion promoting properties of pineapple with the power of probiotics. So, how do you make pineapple vinegar? Super easily! Just take the skin and core from your pineapple, add water, and wait. After a while, the mixture will get a bit bubbly and the pineapple will sink. You'll also likely form a mother of vinegar, a slimy, jelly-like layer. Don't worry - you're perfectly on track! You can save the mother to make your next batch of vinegar a bit faster.

What's your favorite way to use vinegar?

  5. Good to know that the skin works. I'd be afraid it would affect the flavor, so I'm glad to see it doesn't. Thanks for sharing at the #WasteLessWednesday Blog Hop!
