Tepache is a natural soda made from the skins of pineapple, originally from Mexico this is an adapted version for you.
You can enjoy like this after just a few short days of brewing or keep it going to make a really sparkling drink or even pineapple scrap vinegar.
Make sure you stir it twice a day to activate and awaken all the yeasts.
1 pineapple (organic if possible)
2L glass jar/bowl
2 cups sugar of choice
Filtered/spring water (no chlorine)
1 tea towel or cloth
1 rubber band
Cut the skin off the pineapple in large strips and place them into the jar.
Pour over the sugar and fill to 2 inches below the top with water.
Cover with the cloth and band and sit on your bench for 5 days or longer.
1-2 times a day stir the contents really well - this part is really important so you harness the right bacteria.
When it reaches that nice balance between sweet and savoury, bottle it and place in your refrigerator.
