It's full of really great recipes that are relatively simple. One of which was how to make a pineapple drink, from all the bits of the pineapple that you would usually throw out. How wonderfully frugal.
So here it is...
All you need is:
- The skin and core only of 1 large pineapple
- 8 cups of water
- 1/4 cup of lemon juice
- 1 cup of sugar
- and a big pot
Step 2. Strain the liquid into another saucepan. Add juice and sugar. Boil 5 mins, stirring to dissolve the sugar.
Step 3. Cover and cool. Once cool, add ice and enjoy. If you're feeling a little bit fancy you can add a few mint leaves and strawberries to posh it up.
I would have put a few pics of my lovely jug of Pineapple Fruit drink, but honestly, we have already almost finished it and a photo of a quarter full jug is a little underwhelming. So instead, I will leave you with this beautiful vintage picture of some wintery looking birds posted by the Graphics Fairy, who's blog is beautiful and generous and well worth a look.
So hooroo. xo.
Who knows when i'll see you again (maybe i'll be back to brag about my creation).
