    Default shrub

    I made up a concoction that I read about called shrub. It's made from 1 part berries, 1 part honey and 1 part apple cider vinegar. The berries are mashed up and then it is all mixed together in a mason jar with lid. The whole mess is left on the counter top for about a week and given a shake every now and then. After the week is up, it is strained. A couple shots is added to a glass of club soda. It is pretty tasty. It is non-alcoholic. If my memory serves, shrub was a predecessor to soda pop.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    In the old days they used those vinegar mixes as refreshment. It was a better hydration aid than plain water.

    Sometimes rum was added to the mix.
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?

    Never made or tried any shrub,,,,but did enjoy a "cherry bounce"....

    Tart cherries are soaked in vodka creating a butt kicking.... cherry-infused liquor, also known as a cherry bounce.
    Folks wound mix a bit with 7-UP at Christmas....was about done about that time....form cherry picking time.

    BTW had added a bit on vinegar to water in real hot weather...and does seem to go directly in to anti-thirst mode.

    Any newly planted shrubs need regular watering while they develop a root system. Even regular rain may not penetrate to the developing roots so they need help to establish, especially when in competition to the nearby hydrangeas.

    Knitting requires the use of two knitting needles (not the sewing kind) and earthworms should be kept out of the coffee....
