The best home made Pineapple Cordial/Syrup

Hello Dear Reader,

This Pineapple cordial is so delightful and refreshing and it made from the bits of the pineapple that you would normally throw away! Absolutely nothing is wasted, the pineapple tops are planted out again for the next crop of Pineapples, the fruit is, of course,  eaten and the skin and core is used to make this cordial. I had frozen the skins and core of the last two pineapples until I was ready to make this cordial. This whole process speaks to my frugal soul.

The last of this years Pineapples, so sweet
Place Pineapple skin and core in a large saucepan
Cover with water and bring to the boil, strain and add sugar and boil again until reduced
Golden Pineapple Cordial


The leftover skin and core from 1 or 2 Pineapples

Enough water to cover the pineapple skins and core

2 to 3 cups of white sugar depending on how many pineapples you have and how sweet you like your cordial


Place Pineapple skin and core in a large saucepan and cover with cold water

Bring to the boil and turn heat down to low, let simmer for 2 hours

Strain Pineapple skins through a fine sieve and return liquid to saucepan

Now add the sugar and bring to the boil again while stirring to dissolve the sugar

Let it boil and reduce until you are happy with the flavour and sweetness

Let cool and then bottle

We have ours with lots of ice over soda water, so refreshing and delicious

You could also use this cordial as a syrup over icecream or poured over a plain sponge cake and served with whipped cream and toasted flaked almonds.

So, tell me, what do you make that is super frugal?
