Pineapple Peel Wine (Homemade) | Step By Step Pics

How are your preparations for Christmas going on?? Well,I have soaked my dry fruits to make plum cake so far and wines are on the way too.Whenever you peel a pineapple,remember to retain it to make this wine.This is a very simple wine that can be made few days before Christmas and can be served immediately without much delay.This wine needs to be used up soon too unlike other wines.I bought the pineapple to make some pineapple juice but then used the peels for the wine & core too.Please go through the note section before you prepare wine.Do try & enjoy !!

Adapted: manorama online

pineapple peel from one large
*water 3 cups
sugar 2.5 -3cups
active dry yeast 1/8 tsp
cloves 3-4
cinnamon 1" piece
egg white 1 lightly beaten

  • Wash the pineapple thoroughly and cut the peels.Use pineapple for making your delicious recipes,reserve the core and skin for this recipe.Washing the skin afterwards loses its juices.So,wash in advance.
  • Boil and cool 3 cups water.Add in sugar,yeast,cinnamon,cloves and pineapple peels.
  • Cover the lid lightly and keep in a dark place.(I usually hide it in the lower kitchen cabinets)

  • On the fifth day,add the egg white and give it a quick stir.Close the lid and leave for another 3-5 days.
  • Open on 10th day,decant the wine without disturbing any of the contents or pour over a muslin cloth.Make sure not to squeeze the contents(I decanted on the 8th day as I made it in summers and got ready soon).
  • Pour it in clean,dry bottles (see in pic;the wine looks cloudy on that day)and wait for another 3 weeks (21 days) or more before you actually start tasting the real flavors of this wine.The pics are taken after 21 days,it clears most of the cloudiness.

Servings~ 1 quart (4 cups or 950 ml)

*Use clean,dry glass jar or ceramic containers or earthern ware(bharani).Boil the bottles or ceramic jars in water and sun dry for 2 days or completely dry it to store the wine.Keep ready.
* Always use a new clean wooden spoon to stir or mix.Don't use the spoons that use for making curries.
* Always add half of the sugar mentioned on the first day and then add the rest on the fifth day.This helps to reduce over sweetness.You can always modify the sweetness as per sweet tooth.
* If you are using clear bottles or ceramic jars then don't open to check frequently.
* Egg is added to clear the wine and purifying it.If you omit this step,then leave the wine longer to get the clear pic of wine.Otherwise it may look clouded and unfiltered.
*The wine may look cloudy on first decant,give time to filter out and I usually change bottles(clean,dry ones )until I get a clear wine.OR Leave undisturbed and don't shake bottle whenever pouring in glasses as sediments are always present.

My wine has turned bitter. Though I have already sieved it is there any way to rectify the bitterness

Julie said... Best Blogger Tips

Am sorry that the wine turned bitter. Once the wine is bitter, it's gone bad and can't be rectified. The reasons can be over fermentation or mold growth. Either way it's not good to consume. Better luck next time.
