- 170 g of pineapple core and eyes (approximately such a quantity remains after cleaning one medium fruit)
- 85 g lemon peel or lime (perfect for squeezed pieces left over from the preparation of some other dish)
- 120 g brown or white sugar (with brown sugar syrup will be more fragrant)
This amount will produce about 140 grams of syrup.
Cut the pineapple and peels into small pieces. Put them in a ceramic or glass container. Add the sugar and mix well.
Tightly wrap the container with food film. Leave at room temperature for at least 4 hours to allow the sugar to dissolve completely. To speed up the process, mix the ingredients about every hour. Pour the resulting liquid into another container through a sieve. Put a spatula or spoon on the pineapples and to drain as much syrup as possible.
Store the syrup in a glass jar in the fridge for not longer than three months.
