Pineapple skin (peel) wine


Print Friendly and PDF

I had a great holiday and a wonderful Christmas with my family......wishing a very happy new year to all my wonderful blogger friends.
This was my late grandmothers favorite wine....she used to make this for Christmas.... got the recipe from Vanitha... this wine always brings back fond memories of her. I always make pineapple jam, pineapple preserve, and pineapple squash before Christmas and make this wine with the skin of the pineapple....yes you guessed right I am a pineappleholic..... The best thing about making this wine is that you do not have to stir it every day...once it is all tied up you have to open it and strain it after 10 days and bottle it and keep for another 21 days and it is ready to use.....this wine is a huge hit with all my friends....especially their hubbies :)

Ingredients:
Pineapple skin: 1 medium pineapple.(I also added the middle stem and 1 or 2 slices for extra flavor).
Sugar: 1 3/4 cup.
Water: 1 1/2 cup.
Beaten egg white: 1
Dry ginger or chukku : 1 tbsp crushed.
Cloves: 6.
Cinnamon: 2 sticks.
Yeast: 1/2 tsp.(I used instant yeast).
Method:
In a ceramic jar or bharani put in all the ingredients and mix well with a wooden spoon. Close the lid and cover it with a cloth and tie it tightly with a string. Keep aside in a dark place for 10 days on the 11th day strain it with a strainer. Pour into sun-dried bottles and keep for another 21 days.....it is best to keep the wine for 21 days to mature but for those who cant wait that long it can be consumed after 5 days of bottling.

Happy new year to all!!!

  10. Nisa,welcome back:)!!! Pineapple skin wine is super duper fantastic-I am wondering...this is non-alcoholic or a regular wine with the standard amount of alcohol? I will definately give it a shot.You had asked if there was a substitute to self raising flour-The answer would be-Baking Powder,yes-self raising flour basically comes ready with the rising agent.That is the only differemce between the regular maida(all purpose flour) and self raising flour :)

    1. Hi, Anooj thanks for stopping by-about your query; I make this pineapple skin wine during pineapple season, this recipe has been passed down from my maternal grandmother, where there was pineapple in abundance during the season...and since there will be lots of pineapple skin after making jams and squashes with the pineapple flesh, these skin was used to make wine....I have added the middle part and 2 or 3 slices of pineapple while making wine...and found that it gave a nice flavor and color to the wine...hope this helps.

  17. Sounds great. One question is it possible to leave out the egg white as my partner has an egg allergy?

  20. Just now checked, very nice wine bottle, tempting to taste. Thanks for clarification.

    I also don't have ceramic jar at the moment handy. I am going to use either big clean glass or plastic bottle. Let me know if it is compulsory to use ceramic jar.

  22. Can u please tel me if you added the skin as it is? I mean did u grate it or peel it very thinly Or sumthng like that. I have heard that water makes the wine sour. so do we have to wait for the washed skin peels to air dry? I really would like to try this out. Thanx in advance

    1. Yes, I added the skin...maybe cut into two or three...I make this wine often....when ever I cut a pineapple...I do not throw away the peels...I used filtered water...or boiled and cooled water....its better to wash the whole pineapple and allow it to dry overnight...then cut the skin...and pop into ceramic jar...with the flesh i make jam or squash....its one of the easiest wines...and always have a nice yellow color...try it..you will love it.

  25. Hi nisa,
    How do you store wine esp rice wine that is made in bulk

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I make onlyi with the above mentioned measure; rice wine also the same and it will be about 3 bottles and that will be there for a long time. But yes, it is best to store wine in glass bottles and away from sunlight (in dark place) it will stay good for ages. Thanks harvinder for stopping by :)
