My First Fail With Wild Experimentation..

So… this is a page all about my experimentation with wild fermentation so there are bound to be some not so nice outcomes…. right.

So this was suppose to be an attempt at tepache…. a mexican fermented pineapple drink. I got horrible very mouldy bad smelling pineapple vomit ….. YUMMO!

I feel I had gone wrong with the type of pineapple (non organic) and the sultanas i happened to throw in for a bit of extra sugar to ferment.. i’m sure when done right this would be a very tasty drink!

So by all means give this a go! Just remember to keep an eye on it as if you let it ferment too long it turns to pineapple vinegar. (which could be useful if you really thought about it)

So what do you need to create pineapply golden sunshine?

1 Ripe Pineapple, (or just the peels)                                                                                             1 cup organic sugar                                                                                                                      1 stick of cinnamon                                                                                                                    1/2 a coconut                                                                                                                              handful sultanas                                                                                                                           2 L of filtered water

Mix all ingredients together in a glass jar and cover with a cloth. Leave to ferment for 24 hours. Stir, leave for up to 36 – 48 hours and then taste… serve if you like the amount of sweetness.

Now this is what the finished product is suppose to look like!

  1. I wasn’t the biggest tepache fan either. I did it with skins and cores only. It tasted OK but I won’t make it again. Look up Sally wise fermented fruit drinks they are yummo!!
