About This Recipe-

A shrub is also known as a drinking vinegar which has actually been around for a very long time. It was originally a way of preserving fruit. It’s usually made with apple cider vinegar, fruit and sweetened with sugar and becomes a sweet and sour syrup, but our traditionally made balsamic fruit flavored vinegars are an easy probiotic option without the addition of sugar.  A generous splash can be diluted with seltzer water, and can be spiked with a spirit so it’s a perfect alcohol-optional beverage. 

Try mixing this up with Kanoe’s suggestion of Pineapple white balsamic for a “plantation iced tea” and garnish with fresh pineapple, or our peach white balsamic for a peach tea flavor.  You can also use flavored tea to add to the flavor like a mango and black tea, peach and black tea, or lemon verbena for a refreshing twist.

When that first crisp morning arrives at the beginning of September, all I want to do is get to the market to pick up some pears and some Brie so I can eat this for dinner. During the holiday season I make this caramelized pear topping in massive quantities and store it in the fridge for last-minute guests. It’s quick and easy, and it even lands on toast or oatmeal (as long as no one is watching). Make sure to use a mild and fruity olive oil.

This is a classic Egyptian way to serve bread as a starter course, with other dips and “mezzeh” (appetizers), or alongside kebabs with a nice green salad.  This is also a fun gift idea to make as a hostess gift or for holiday gift giving. Portion dukkah into small mason jars along with a nice bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil!
