What is rind anyway?

You are what you eat.

Hi debbie. While I don't have a recipe for pineapple juice, I have watched an infomercial for a juicer/blender? where you can throw in the entire pineapple - rind and all. Can't think of the brand, but imagine the juicer/blender needs a pretty good motor to grind up/pulverize the rind and all. It may have been a Jack LaLane (sp?) blender/juicer. I have a mgaic bullet with a juicer attachment that supposedly you can add any veggies, carrots etc - but have not tried it as yet. Check around and see what suits your needs. Hope that helps.

The reason i ask is because i buy atleast 1 pineapple a week and i remembered that my family made juice with it. My grandma said she would wash the rind then soak it in water overnight then add sugar as needed and some vanilla and thats the pineapple juice. Thank you for all your responses. I do notice that the rind dont always look so great so i'm not sure if i will try this, maybe if i get a pineapple that has a nice clean rind that can be easily washed. Thanks again.

if you core it, all you have to do is squeeze the cut off parts and juice should come out similar to squeezing a lemon, once strained, its pure pineapple juice, no need to boil :)

I have a Champion juicer that would make pineapple juice for you, but it's somewhat pricey just to make pineapple juice!

Hi Debbie,

If you are still interested in making the pineapple juice using the rind this is what I know.

Boil the rind with some fresh whole pieces of ginger and then let stand for 12 to 24hrs. Then strain and add sugar to taste. The ginger helps bring out the flavour but do not use too much ginger can be very overpowering.

hope that helps let me know how it goes

If you boil the rind, any nasty such as maggots will die and float to the top so you can always skim it or if it looks to nasty for you, ditch it. If you are getting through that level of pineapples though, it isn't a costly excercise for you to have a go.

Our pineapples must be of a high quality cos the skin is always very good looking and gets put into cocktails pretty regularly - actually in the drink as well as just the wedge on the edge of the glass. I've never seen anything come out of any pineapples I have purchased.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Every so often you will get a pineapple that has been rotten from the inside, I used to core about 50 a week when I worked in produce growing up. I'd say 95% of fresh pineapples are just fine though.
