this is for your humans:
ps, I have been trying to post, but there have been technical glitxches today.
1 large pineapple, ripe, leaves reserved, peeled, cored, and cut into chunks
3 pears, peeled, halved, and cored
2 cups cooled camomile tea
1/2 cup fragrant dessert wine (recommended: Muscat de Beaumes de Venise or Sauternes)
Honey
Freshly squeezed lemon juice
In a food processor, combine the pineapple and pear chunks. Puree until smooth and strain through a fine sieve into a bowl. Add the tea and wine and mix. Add honey and lemon juice a little bit at a time to taste. Chill until very cold. Serve in bowls or martini glasses, garnishing each bowl with 2 pineapple leaves, sticking up like rabbit ears.
