Ingredients

  • 2 Cups crushed blueberries
  • 2 Cups white sugar
  • 3 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1 Cup cider vinegar

Directions

To make the shrub: combine the crushed fruit, sugar and mint in a bowl, cover and let macerate on the counter for at least 24 hours.

Strain syrup through a sieve, pressing on the solids to extract all the juice, and discard the solids.

Stir in the vinegar and bottle.

May be stored at room temperature, but I store mine in the fridge.

Blueberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blueberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
