Cayenne Cinnamon Pineapple Chunks & Vegan Alcohol Questions

So my partner came home after hanging out at the beach all day with some of her omnivorous friends and had a rather strange question posed to her.

By “rather strange,” I mean “wow.”

She had been asked about a supposed liquor that had bison urine as one of the ingredients and whether a vegan would drink the liquor knowingly or not.

Not exactly your usual alcohol question.

First, I said no, because no one can be sure what the handling procedures are, and I can say without too much of a doubt that it isn’t something that I’d think was right for any sentient being.  Not to mention the fact of drinking urine from anything isn’t exactly on my bucket list.

Second, I searched for liquors that weren’t vegan(quite a few, but none that I saw a description involving urine).  It’s actually a really handy tool I use for alcoholic drinks.

You get to the main page & it will give you a choice of beers, wines, or liquors.  Pick one or just search a name.  Just really useful at a liquor store.  Or at a bar.  Or if you are wondering.  It’s pretty much the coolest thing for if a vegan wants to find out if a specific alcohol has any animal product in it(wine drinkers, brace yourselves).

Check it out, just something handy for your vegan tool belt.

Now that that’s out of the way, on to the Cayenne Cinnamon Pineapple Chunks!

Grab an entire pineapple, cut the outer layer off & cut the core away.  Cut all of the usable parts into inch-by-inch pieces, you don’t want any too big.

Throw the chunks into a mixing bowl & add 1/4t Cinnamon, 1/4t Cayenne 1/8t clove & 1/8t allspice.  Toss that around for a couple minutes or until all of the chunks have a good deal of the spice on them.

Get your dehydrator out & lay the chunks in a single layer on one of the sheets.  In a day or so, you should have some spicy-yet-sweet morsels ready for camping, protests, road trips, or just a good bike ride(I do a lot of things).

If you don’t have a dehydrator, never fear–throw those chunks on a skewer, put them on a grill & cook them until you have a great side dish for anyone!!


  1. I think the better question would have been for your partner to ask the friend if THEY drink bison urine. Why would anyone, vegan or not, drink urine? That is most definitely a strange question. I thought I’d heard them all. The pineapple with the bit of spice sounds like a great combo!
