Summer is here, and what better way to enjoy it than with a refreshing homemade pineapple juice?
This recipe calls for the pineapple skin and core, not the actual fruit. It's a healthy twist, and delicious way to use the leftovers that you would normally throw away.
All you need is a whole pineapple, spices and water.
