Fresh Pineapple Syrup

Fresh pineapple is a luxury of its own, so make the most of it by putting the core (and eyelets) to good use in this fresh, no-cook syrup. The acidic juice in the fruit scraps is more than enough to dissolve the sugar, creating a thick and flavorful liquid. Plain or toasted sugar works well, but the complexity of raw or semi-raw sugar, like jaggery and palm sugar, or even turbinado and Demerara, is an especially good match for pineapple. Use this syrup as a mixer in your favorite cocktails, or for a pineapple twist on Lemon Chantilly and Crispy Candied Pistachios.
