I was lucky enough to share shrubs with my daughters class at school this afternoon and thought I would repost the recipe for the apple one.
1. Peel and grate apples on a box grater and fill a quart mason jar 3/4 with them
2 top with about 1/2 cup sugar
3 fill jar the rest of the way with vinegar of your choice. I used “honey ginger balsamic” from crow river winery. It is also available at Northfield oils and vinegars.
4. Put a lid on it and refrigerate for a week.
5. Strain and serve with ice and club soda.
MN schools have a four day weekend every October. Ours was this week and Friday we all made a run for the border. Wisconsin. Crystal cave, a cheese factory, a nice round of hiking and Geocaching, our 100th find, a stop at the beer store for some leinies seasonal and a late dinner at the Casino buffet. A super fun educational day off school.
Gorgeous weather and delicious souvenirs: Cheese curds, string cheese, sharp cheddar and one with olives in it. Also a jar of pickled brussel sprouts (spicy) and leinies and new glarus beers. Seriously good eats.

Oh what a fantastic apple shrub! It tastes like honey and ginger and apples! Soooo delicious.
A lot of discussion around here about hops lately. This plant has been growing on the inlaws farm and we got to help harvest it today . Soporific!
I found them like this. Well not exactly like this, I tucked them in.
Nearing the end of a big project is so satisfying and I am on a total embroidery kick. It is just the funnest craft I think. My thread box has never been cleaner which is pretty sad. The box is an artbin I got with a coupon at the craft store.
My old box my grama bought me was finally retired to the kids it had a broken lid and it holds rubber bands now. I have had it since I was about 8 so it got some pretty good years!
