Help making Chicha Morada

lestblight | Sep 16, 2011 06:35 AM

I am making this Peruvian drink which calls for
purple corn
lemon and pineapple

The recipe i have says to boil skins of all fruits with the water and corn for like 45 mins.

I am getting a bitter taste that tastes a little "pithy"

I am wondering if iam getting that from the pineapple rind? or orange, lemon?

Should i just zest citrus and add the juice after its boiled to avoid boiling the skins?
