To celebrate LUSH, our new, limited-edition strawberry vinegar made in collaboration with Oishii, our Chef in Residence, Noreen Wasti, has shared the recipe for a sweet, refreshing strawberry shrub.
"Shrubs are concentrated syrups made with fruit, sugar, and vinegar. The term shrub is derived from the Arabic word sharbah meaning drink. And while shrubs have seemed to surface only recently, they’ve actually been around for centuries as a means of preserving fruits."
"This recipe is all about strawberries and if you’re like me, you buy them in total abundance during the summertime. With Brightland + Oishii’s strawberry vinegar, which is so incredibly beautiful, this shrub is pure strawberry fields forever magic. The vinegar is made from the coveted Omakase Berries — so special!" -Noreen
"Shrubs store for ages in the fridge and only gain unique flavor with time. I love using this strawberry shrub on a hot day with 1 part shrub / 2 parts seltzer water over ice, a sprig of thyme, and a squeeze of lime. It’s also wonderful for a strawberry G&T or as a syrup in your favorite cocktail. Endless summer." -Noreen
