Pineapple vinegar

I have had this recipe laying around for a couple of years now and I finely did it.

Tired of your Apple Cider, your Balsamic or your Rice vinegars ? Here is something original and
it is super simple to make:

In a quart jar or a little bigger, put
the skin/pealing of one pineapple,
cup white sugar
and fill it with water.

Cover the top with a cloth and use a rubber band to hold it in place.

In three weeks you will have vinegar, the longer you wait the stronger it will be.

I filtered it after 20 days and should have left it longer.
With the holidays coming up, I had the choice of stopping it on the 17th or leaving it until the 2nd of January. I chose to stop it.

The pineapple flavor does not completely disappear, but it is not overpowering.

Pineapples may not be readily available in this season over there, but maybe you can find them in the summertime

I would bet this recipe would work with pears or probably any fruit you could think of.

Ready for a 3 week (almost) wait :

A little closer :

Even after filtering through a coffee filter, the result is still cloudy :

For sure this will never replace your favorite vinegar but, it gives a different little something to a Oriental salad in place of rice vinegar.

:wow: That sounds interesting Cal. I might like to try that in a salad dressing or marinade. Thanks for sharing!

Too easy not to try. Thanks for digging it out and sharing Cal

No chickens were harmed in this statement. But it doesn't mean I didn't want to.

The suspension is settling out - I will give it a few more weeks and take another photo.
