This refreshing pineapple drink is not just delicious; it’s also a great way to reduce food waste! While tepache can be made with the whole pineapple, using just the rind produces a flavorful beverage on its own. You can add anise, habanero, or any other delicious infusions to tepache, but I kept it simple with this version.
Place pineapple, cinnamon, and sugar in a jar and fill with enough water to cover, about 1 gallon.
Cover the jar with cheesecloth.
Check after 24-36 hours and taste. If desired, leave for another day or 2.
