Peeling a pineapple is an exercise in patience. Also, really sticky. But it’s worth it in the end to have fresh, juicy pineapple. What to do with the leftover core and skin, though? Not throw them away or compost them, but a secret third thing (make an anti-inflammatory tea).
Pineapple skin tea is a recipe that originates in Jamaica and is served hot or cold. Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain, which helps the body break down protein and improves digestion. It also may help reduce fluid retention. In the version below, fresh ginger and turmeric are added to the brew, upping the anti-inflammatory benefits. (P.S.: add a pinch of black pepper before drinking; it helps our bodies better absorb and use the main compound in turmeric, curcumin). See how to make it below.
