Honey Apple Shrub

Honey Apple Shrub
1 lb. apples (about 3 apples), cut into cubes
3/4 cup honey
1 cup cider vinegar

If you like tart, choose Granny Smith apples. Prefer more sweetness? Choose Honeycrisp or Fuji. Make sure you use a sanitary prep area, container and utensils and remember to wash fruits before preparing.

Prep: 10 minutes, Marinate: 4 to 5 days, Makes: 1½ cups 

1. Cover apples in honey in a medium bowl and stir well. Add vinegar and stir until well combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours.

2. Remove mixture from refrigerator and strain through a mesh sieve to remove chunks. Pour strained mixture into a clean bottle or jar. Stir again and refrigerate for 3 to 4 more days. 
3. Keep refrigerated until ready to use, for up to 1 month. Discard shrub immediately if off odors or colors develop, if it’s giving off any gases or bubbling.

You can find this shrub used in our Mull On This Cider and Honey Appletini cocktail recipes.
