      This is nanas famous Crockpot Pineapple Moonshine recipe- if you have a cold/flu or cough, this’ll knock it out of your chest in one hearty shot. (At least, our family swears by it!)

      The crockpot recipe for pineapple moonshine calls for pineapple juice, and pineapple is loaded with vitamin C, which acts as an antioxidant in the body.

      Vitamin C helps the body absorb iron more efficiently and aids in building up collagen that keeps bones strong and heals cuts and wounds. Pineapple crockpot moonshine is also a great source of manganese that helps protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.

      Pineapples crockpot moonshine also contains thiamin (vitamin B1), which helps your body get energy from carbohydrates you eat, while keeping your nervous system healthy; selenium to fight against cancer; copper to strengthen bones and form red blood cells; fiber to help digestion; and folate for heart health.

      There, now that I’ve touted the um.. *cough* health benefits, here’s how nana makes it.

      Nana’s Crockpot Pineapple Moonshine

      Ingredients
      56 ounces canned pineapple juice
      2 cups granulated sugar
      1 liter everclear grain alcohol or (a decent high octane vodka)

      Combine pineapple juice and sugar to crock-pot.
      Cook on LOW for 2 hours with lid slightly ajar.

      Allow mixture to cool completely before adding in Alcohol. Add the alcohol, stir to combine and let it set 1 hour.

      Pour mixture into 4 Quart Canning Jars.

      Add lids and rings to jars.
      Store in a cool dry place.

      Sometimes people ask if the alcohol burns off during cooking, the answer is NO. This is called moonshine for a reason.

      What’s the Difference Between Everclear and Moonshine? … Everclear is the brand name for a grain alcohol that has a neutral taste. Moonshine, or corn whiskey, is a type of illegally made liquor. Basically, Everclear is water and pure ethanol without any flavor added.

      You might have a difficult time locating Everclear as many areas do not allow the sale of pure grain alcohol. When we lived in Maine, we had to drive to New Hampshire to acquire the liquor.

      You can, however, substitute a high quality vodka to achieve a similar flavor, but it won’t have the same potency as it does when using Everclear.

      We’ve made this particular recipe a couple of times. I recommend adding a cinnamon stick to the pineapple juice in the crockpot. It adds a depth of flavor that is particularly enjoyable in the fall and winter months.
