Fruit Shrubs

The key is to use equal part (by weight) of fruit, sugar and vinegar. It doesn’t matter how much, as long as they are equal.

250g fruit
250g white sugar
250g balsamic vinegar
Mason jar

Wash and dry fruit. Add fruit to mason jar and top with sugar. Muddle well. Seal jar and allow to sit for 48 hrs at room temp, shaking once every day.

After 48 hours, add balsamic vinegar to jar. Seal and shake to mix well. Allow to sit for 7 – 10 days at room temp, shaking once every day.

NOTE: If using strawberries, they should sit at room temp for 3 days max total.

Strain mixture into bottle for storage. Store in fridge for 3 months.
