The recipe makes a thick, syrupy vinegar - similar to a sweet & sticky balsamic glaze or shrub/'drinking vinegar'. It's an interesting sweet, spicy & savoury addition to so many dishes - from a dash or 2 in a meat marinade to a goats cheese salad.
A shrub is a fruity, flavored vinegar. It is often sweetened and cooked down into a syrup to flavor cocktails or carbonated drinks. Get inspired by two of our favorite shrub recipes: Strawberry Basil and Strawberry Lavender Shrub. Enjoy!
Ever had Velvet Falernum? NO?! Its wonderful blend of spices makes incredible cocktails. Buying Falernum can be hard to find, and taste artificial and bland. Use vinegar and make a non-alcoholic shrub that will take your cocktails to the next level!
Simple, sweet and refreshing! Extend the farmer's market treasures, home grown harvests or CSA deliveries by preserving them as a Sparkling Rhubarb Shrub (aka drinking vinegar). Pairs perfectly with good tequila, fresh mint and soda.
Flavor-packed cranberries abound during the holidays, making them particularly well suited to a shrub. The addition of rosemary gives the shrub a Christmassy flavor and the orange finishes it off with a pleasant citrus bitterness.
