Tomorrow’s (last) farmers market WILL still be held, rain or shine.

We hope you’ll all come down to join us and say farewell to the growing season, and our farmers until next year.

Cheers!

This week, Shrubs!

Shrubs

We’ve been experimenting with shrubs, the sweet/tart/syrupy liquid preserve that was once an almost lost bit of American culinary heritage. It’s enjoyed with and without alcohol.

Here displayed are three variations: Door County plum shrub with apple cider vinegar, Meyer Lemon shrub with ACV and buckwheat honey, and a plum/lemon shrub with meyer lemon juice instead of vinegar.

The recipe is 1:1:1… equal parts sugar, vinegar/acid, and fruit. You can speed it up with heat, or let it soak in the fridge to preserve the more delicate flavors. It’s incredibly fun and easy.. and if I can manage to save it, I look forward to a summery cocktail in the dark days of winter!
