Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Cranberry-apple shrub is a tangy taste of fall, and a great addition to the holiday table. From "Shrubs: An Old Fashioned Drink for Modern Times" by Michael Dietsch.
A spicy fresh apple shrub makes a perfect base for a classic autumnal cocktail, especially when garnished with a slightly salty caraway seed brittle.
The traditional ratio for shrubs is one part sugar, one part vinegar and one part fruit. However, because apples are so sweet all on their own, when I’m working with them, I ease back on the sugar a little and increase the amount of fruit.
A delicious fall take on a classic shrub.
For those of you who have not gotten in on these amazing vinegar-based cocktails, now is the time!
You won't look back.
Home made elixers and cordials are always crowd pleasers, this rosemary and mint melange is no exception. Very appetizery -- good prelude to a delicous feast.
