  • Fresh ginger, peeled and coarsely chopped, 1
  • Peeled fresh lemongrass, coarsely chopped, ¼ cup
  • Water, 10 cups

Juicing It Up

Peel the pineapples and cut them into medium-sized chunks. Put them in a large saucepan and add 6 cups of water. Place the saucepan over medium heat and bring it to boil.

Once the pulp has been formed, drain the liquid in a colander and allow it to cool down. Meanwhile, take a food processor container and add the coarsely chopped lemongrass and ginger, along with a few tablespoons of water. Process the ingredients till they are finely chopped. Place the mixture in a cheesecloth and tie it up. Soak this cheesecloth in a bowl of water for about 30 minutes. After this squeeze the cloth to strain the juice. Mix this with the pineapple juice and stir in the sugar. Take a tall glass and put a few ice cubes. Pour the juice and garnish it with mint sprigs for a refreshing beverage.
