Shoyu is a term most people are not not familiar with, but it effectively means 'soy sauce.' After inquiring at a specialty grocer, I learned there are five different types of shoyu. For this recipe I used a low-sodium soy sauce. For this recipe I bought a pineapple and cut enough slices and then blended the pineapple chunks until I got enough liquid for 1/2 cup of juice.
