Fruit Shrubs

A fruit shrub (from the Arabic ‘shrab’, meaning drink) is a drinking vinegar that was popular in colonial New England as a thirst quencher during haying season.   Our shrubs boast ¼ - ⅓ lb. of delicious, nutritious fruit juice in each bottle.  No water is added, so pour a splash into still or bubbly water, add to a cocktail or white wine or combine with extra virgin olive oil for salad dressing! We make 6-8 shrub varieties each season; our 2017 shrubs include:

Strawberry - strawberries, red wine vinegar and organic sugar
Raspberry - red raspberries, red wine vinegar and organic sugar
Black raspberry - black raspberries, red wine vinegar and raw honey
Black & Blue - blackberries, blueberries, red wine vinegar and organic sugar
Brambleberry - blackberries, raspberries, red wine vinegar and organic sugar
Red Goose - gooseberries, raspberries, red wine vinegar and organic sugar  
Spiced Pear - pears, apple cider vinegar, organic sugar, molasses, spices
Crabapple - Ginger - crabapples, organic honey, red wine vinegar, fresh ginger

Black Currant Cordial

Kiss of Cassis, our black currant cordial, is concentrated fruit juice. Whole black currants (¾ lb per 8 oz bottle) are pressed and juiced and then honey is added until the tartness of the berry is balanced with the sweetness of honey. So black currants and honey -  that's all -  no added water or alcohol.  As with a shrub, you can use Kiss of Cassis in myriad ways: create a thirst-quenching beverage or special cocktail, drizzle over ice cream or yogurt or add to a marinade.
