Pineapple Squash

Pineapple Squash

One of the things that you could do when you get home a Pineapple that is a bit sour – Make a Pineapple Squash. Store the squash in the refrigerator. When your kid/s are back from play, throw in some ice cubes in a glass. Pour some squash and top with water. Done ! Done ! Thank You Mom !

Yield: 500 ml Concentrate

Prep. Time: 15 Mins.

Cooking Time: 30 to 35 Mins


  • Pineapple (skinned, cubed) – 750 gms (cleaned)
  • Sugar – 350 gms
  • Citric Acid – ¼ tsp. (optional)
  • Lemon Yellow Food Colour – 2 to 3 drops (optional)

Step 1:     Take the pineapple chunks in a pressure cooker and add 250 ml water. Pressure cook on high heat for 5 to 6 whistles. Then switch off the heat and allow to cool (see notes below).

  • To cook the pineapple without pressure cooker – cook covered on medium heat for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • You could skip straining the squash. But I feel it irritates the throat if it is not strained.
