A simple  shrub recipe using rhubarb or any other fruit. Delicious added to cocktails or sparkling water. An old way of preserving the essence and flavor of fruit!


Units Scale
  • 2 cups fruit – rhubarb, diced into very small 1/4 inch pieces ( or use other fruit or berries)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar (white or apple cider, or any other)


Mix the rhubarb and granulated sugar in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 4-5 days, stirring every 12 hours. Strain the liquid, pressing down hard on solids. Mix the rhubarb syrup with vinegar and pour into a lidded jar and refrigerate. You can use immediately, but after a week, their flavors will deepen, meld and harmonize. Add to cocktails or sparkling water.
This will keep up to a year.
