The Ultimate Pineapple Marinade
- 1 1/4 cups crushed pineapple
- 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 teaspoon grated ginger
- 1/4 teaspoon powdered cloves
- In a medium glass or plastic bowl, combine all ingredients until well mixed through. Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days after preparation.
- Recommended usage: Marinate pork for 4-8 hours, poultry for 3-4 hours, vegetables and meat substitute for no more than one hour. If using on fish and seafood, marinate for 30 minutes.
- You can make this marinade into a sauce! Add all ingredients to a saucepan, and simmer over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring often. Reduce heat, and simmer on low for an additional 5 minutes. Sauce should be reduced and able to coat the back of a spoon. Drizzle on grilled, baked, air fried, or broiled proteins.
