- Use leftover pineapple peel/rind and place them in a pot. Add enough water to cover the rinds by about one half inch. Bring to a boil for about 10 minutes and then add about ½ cup of uncooked white rice. Keep boiling until the rice splits or puffs. Let cool. Strain. Add about twice as much water as you got from the pot. Add Sugar to taste. Drink very cold.
