Brad is the manager of the BA Test Kitchen and a bit of a character. He is also a new father, and was tasked with selecting a few father’s day gift ideas. Stuff that he would want. As you might expect from Brad, the list is a bit eccentric – like a $30,000 kitchen knife made form melted down asteroids.
And Brad offers a video (it appears at the bottom of the page). He shows you how to make tepache. In cawse you are wondering
Tepache is a fermented beverage made from the peel and the rind of pineapples, and is sweetened either with piloncillo or brown sugar, seasoned with powdered cinnamon, and served cold. Though tepache is fermented for several days, the resulting drink does not contain much alcohol. In Mexican culinary practice, the alcoholic content of tepache may be increased with a small amount of beer.
