 In a porcelain jar of 5 litre capacity or a glass bottle of 5 litre capacity, add pineapple pieces, sugar, yeast, wheat, cinnamon, clove and water and tightly close the lid.

From next day on until seventh day on a daily basis, stir it using a wooden ladle and then close the lid tightly. The ladle should be washed and dried properly.

After seven days, it should be kept undisturbed for two weeks. Later, strain the wine into another bottle. Then keep it untouched for some days for it to become clear.

Once clear it can be served normally or chilled. With this amount of ingredients, 3.5 litres of wine will be obtained.
