Apple-Cinnamon Shrub

  • 3 apples - cored & grated
  • 1 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 2 cinnamon sticks - broken into 2-inch pieces

Combine all of the ingredients in a large, resealable jar. Allow the mixture to soak for 2-3 days in fridge, carefully turning and shaking it in the morning and at night.

Strain the mixture through a sieve lined with cheesecloth and store the resulting liquid in the refrigerator for at least another 4-5 days before using. To use, simply replace lemon or lime juice in your favorite drink recipes with the shrub for a festive touch. Also fantastic splashed in warm apple cider. Makes a lovely homemade gift in festive bottles.

  • Yields: 1/2 quart
  • Preparation Time: About a week
