Pineapple Cooler September 26, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — cablefamilycooks @ 2:25 pm

Ingredients

  • 1 large (about 4 pounds) fresh pineapple
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) sugar
  • 11 sprig(s) fresh lavender, rosemary, or lemon verbena
  • 1/4 cup(s) fresh lemon juice

Directions

  1. Cut the peel from the pineapple, remove the core, and cut the fruit into 1-inch pieces.
  2. Place the fruit in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and pulse until the pineapple is crushed but not pureed. Transfer to a large nonreactive pot, add the sugar, 4 cups water, and 3 herb sprigs.
  3. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 15 minutes. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve.
  4. Gently press the solids to extract the juice. Cool and stir in the lemon juice. Serve over ice garnished with the remaining herb sprigs.
