How to make pineapple juice?

Might be a weird question but do any of you know how to make pineapple juice using the rind? I know my mom made this when we were younger but i dont know how. I plan to ask her tomorrow but i thought i'd ask on here also. I vaguely remember them boiling the rind. Thanks.

Hello Debbie

I saw a receipe for something like that, except it was for orange juice.
What u do is chop up the orange/pineapple and boil it with the rind in some water for a while. Then add sugar. Then u put the stuff through a sieve. Apparently it tastes good either hot or cold.

I would not use the rind, personally. Some nasty things can live in there.

Why not just juice the fruit?

I recently was told that you can take the rind and mix up with sugar, lemon juice and some spices. This idea was given to the Chef Director at the cookery school I attended for a two day course. He was given the idea by a Jamiacan lady. I don't have the recipe but it may be findable with West Indian recipes.

This isn't what I was thinking about but is a way to use the pineapple trimmings. The recipe is way down in the pineapple section.

you sure it`s not pinapple Tea you`re thinking of?
that Does require boiling of the rind and the core (sliced up) with some sugar in the water.
I always make the stuff here whenever we have a pinapple, but I`ve only had it Hot, although I`m sure you could drink it cold too :)

When you make pineapple vinegar and such you are warned that you might find some unsavory things (eg,maggots) which come out of the rind.

Dole makes pineapple juice. They package it in cans, bottles, and coated cardboard cartons. It is not very expensive, and it's guaranteed pure.
