Try The Simple Recipe At Home
Here’s everything you need to know about pineapple champagne and fermenting pineapples at home to make it:
- Peel along with some part of the flesh of 1 pineapple
- 200 grammes sugar
- 3 slices of ginger
- 1 whole cinnamon stick
Once you have all the ingredients, follow these steps:
- Wash the thick pineapple peel thoroughly to get rid of all the impurities.
- Take a big jar and sterilise it with some hot water.
- Add the sugar, ginger, and cinnamon to the jar, top it up with some warm water, and mix it well.
- Only when the water has cooled down, add the pineapple peels to the jar.
- For the next 60 hours, let it sit at room temperature until you see froth collecting on the top. For a more tart flavour, let it sit for longer.
- After it has fermented, strain the liquid into a glass bottle.
- This bottled pineapple champagne will have to be fermented for two more days. Be sure to open the lid after one day to let the CO2 release.
- Once done, enjoy it chilled.
Pro tip: Store in the refrigerator to slow down further fermentation.
