Be sure to wash pineapples before cutting and juicing. Save pineapple rinds and leftover pulp when juicing. Add Pineapple scraps to 2 cups of raw cane sugar. Muddle and let sit for 4-6 hours. When ready, add the sugar and pineapple scraps to a pot with 1.5 cup water. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer, stirring until sugar is fully dissolved. Strain, using cheesecloth if necessary. Optional, add 8 Black peppercorns to the sugar & scrap mixture. Strain at the end.

  • Yield: varies based on how much pulp & how much flesh is left on the rind. Roughly 1 qt.


Pineapple Rind Syrup makes use of the scraps of a pineapple that otherwise would have been thrown out.
