In Southern Africa, the days are now long and hot. For anyone aware of the Summers this side of the equator, it is obvious there is a peculiar thirst one cannot wish away. The only solution is drinking it away and Kenya has come to everyone's rescue. If you are tired of boring old water and irritatingly ever present sobriety, one Facebook user in Kenya suggests you try Pineapple peel brew. It is a Mexican brew everyone will be happy to appropriate and put to good use. Sorry Mexicans, we are stealing this one from you.
Nairobi News News reports that a surprisingly simple procedure posted by a Facebook user in Kenya has the capacity to drown your sorrows away in the waters of joy and wisdom. Naturally, when word got out, pineapple peels became "hot property". What used to be residue will now bring a whole lot more joy to the world. The report says, "Usually pineapple vendors throw the peels away after selling the edible slices. But not anymore. The peels are now attracting a growing clientele of parched throats."
At this point, it is necessary to appreciate that pineapple trees always had the potential to be special. Allan Marega's Global Supply Solutions made a lot of money by producing "charcoal" from the "leaves and stem of a harvested pineapple fruit". The charcoal can be called briquettes. It was a genius move except it was not a beer-making genius. Marega might be kicking himself for not trying to use the peels for something. However, it is all fair and fine as the masses now get to do it themselves. Mexican beer, the African sun and the universal elation good alcohol bring are unbeatable.
In case you need the recipe for the weekend, Standard Media says you will need three pineapples, sugar, water and a cooler. You will then happily dice the fruit, put it in a container and add a dash of sugar. The more the sugar, the more your world will spin in three days. Some cinnamon to taste will do just great too. If you seal the container for three good days, my friend, you would have successfully made your waters of wisdom. If you find this a little weird, just remember that in Poland, a beer made from the vaginal lactic acid of "hot models" went on sale. Some man might be getting tipsy on the "essence of models" as you are reading this. Yikes!
