Muy Caliente Pineapple Vinagre (Vinegar)

Recipe by SusieQusie
READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 1 quart




  • Cut the tops off the pineapples and discard them.
  • With a big knife, cut off the rind from the pineapples with as little pineapple attached as possible.
  • Put the rinds in a pot large enough to hold them comfortably and pour in enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and boil until the pineapple peel is very tender, about 30 minutes. Top off with water if necessary to keep the rinds submerged.
  • Meanwhile, put the onion, oregano, peppercorns, garlic, Habanero or other chili pepper, vinegar, and salt in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Strain the pineapple liquid over the seasonings. If there is not enough liquid to cover the ingredients, re-cover the pineapple with water and boil for 20 minutes.
  • Taste and add a little salt and/or a little vinegar, if you think it needs it.
  • You can use it as soon as it cools, but it will get better as it sits.
