Habanero Shrub

21 comments

Our friend Marion Spear is the queen of shrubs. She makes them from all kinds of fruits and introduced us to chile pepper shrub. Yeehaw! Besides as a sipping beverage to clear the throat before singing, she uses them on ice cream, as a beverage with cream (rather like a syllabub), with whipped cream as a pie filling and in a multitude of other ways. If you can tolerate foods that have the characteristic capsaicin burn, you will find this shrub an invigorating, delicious tonic. The honey balances and subdues the heat without totally extinguishing it. I use this whenever I feel a sniffle, cold or sore throat coming on.
