Raspberry Shrub from Homemade Root Beer, Soda, and Pop by Stephen Cresswell
2 cups of raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
2 cups sugar

Place raspberries in small pot. Cover with vinegar and mash with a potato masher (or blend with stick blender). Heat on low, adding sugar gradually until all has been dissolved. Bring to a boil then remove from heat.

Strain into a clean vessel (I used a Ball Jar). Allow to cool. Refrigerate.

To make a glass of drink: stir 1/4 cup of mixture into a glass of water and add ice. Enjoy!

Episodes 1 and 1a - On a podcast, I'll show my crazy; and Field Trip: Chickens and Turkeys

My first podcast!! I had hoped to edit together the knitting/farm update portion along with the field trip, but my ancient (4 year old) computer can't handle it. So, there are two videos. Show notes for each below. I hope you enjoy it!

Podcast 1: I go on and on about knitting and spinning for 22 minutes. Farm update starts at 22:22.
