Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar Shrub
I truly hope everyone else gets so much sanctification from knowing right where the things you put into your body come from. Well let us get started this is super simple.
1 1/2 cups of strawberries 9hulled and chopped)
1/2 cup of natural sugar
1/2 cup of Balsamic Vinegar
Get stared by cleaning your strawberries hulling and chopping them
Place them into a bowl with the sugar and mix well
Prior to putting my mixture into the refrigerator for a two day rest I will smash them together to bring out as much flavor as possible.
When I make a shrub I personally want as much of the fruit flavor as possible thus all the smashing. The sugar needs to completely dissolved
One this is all incorporated put the mixture in the refrigerator for up to two day's. I have often times forgotten and it does sit a bit longer but no issue it is good. That I know.
Bring you mixture out of the refrigerator and strain your strawberry mixture. Add the vinegar and mix this up well with the strawberry mixture in the same bowl. Once this is mixed together pour the mixture into a Mason Jar and cap this is good for a couple month's refrigerated.
Now Just Pour and Enjoy.
Add some of your Dehydrated Citrus Slices. Yumm!
* NOTE: I use the fruit that was strained for other uses.
