Picture of Pique de pina or pique boricua
This is a recipe for pique boricua or pique de piña. It is a puertorrican recipe for a hot pineapple flavored vinegar that can be used to make any meal hot. It tastes great on top of rice and beans. This is a great way to use the pineapple skin before it is dumped on your compost pile. I need to warn you that it is very hot and you may use a little bit at a time.

This is an interesting room you took the photo in. What is the plant hanging from the string...... and why?

I know that it must be some sort of tropical plant. Maybe Yucca.

Why is it hanging?

They are medicinal aloes, maybe a local superstition because they are not sold in that way.

hey sounds great, but i was wondering roughly how long it would keep and also what conditions it should be stored?

I had kept my bottles in my kitchen cabinets for a long time. It will not go bad.
