"Healthy Bones" Prickly Pear Shrub

$17.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit

For this very special shrub, we infused calcium-rich herbs in vinegar for several weeks to extract their bone-building minerals. Then we strained the vinegar and mixed it with local prickly pear, and raw honey. This shrub can be used to make a delicious beverage by diluting it 4:1 with bubbly or still water, a sprig of mint or a squeeze of lime (or both).

Ingredients: nectar from locally foraged prickly pear, raw honey, Bernie's Best raw apple cider vinegar infused with nettle, oatstraw, dandelion, mugwort and horsetail

Recipe is vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and GAPS-diet friendly.

"Healthy Lungs" Apple Shrub

$18.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit

For this seasonal shrub, we infused Bernie's Apple Cider Vinegar with locally foraged yerba santa leaves and fresh thyme, both known for their lung-supporting properties. We added housemade juice from steamed, local Biodynamic apples along with raw local honey to balance the traditional tang of the oxymel (vinegar-infused medicinal tonic). This shrub can be used to make a delicious beverage by diluting it 4:1 with bubbly or still water, a sprig of mint or a squeeze of lime (or both) -- or of course adding some of Bernie's Gravenstein Apple Cider.

Ingredients: nectar from locally foraged yerba santa leaves, raw wildflower honey, Bernie's Best raw apple cider vinegar infused with apples, thyme

Recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, and GAPS-diet friendly.

Friar's Cyder

$18.00
Inspired by the traditional recipe for Fire Cider, our Friar's Cyder is a powerful, immune-building tonic. Fire Cider was developed by the eminent herbalist Rosemary Gladstar as a warming and energizing oxymel (vinegar-honey based medicine) to aid digestion, boost circulation, and break up congestion. Our Friar's Cyder has all these properties, but we have eliminated the cayenne, a nightshade which can be inflammatory for many. Take a shot of Friar's Cyder straight as a tonic, add it to salad dressing, or stir it into warm tea or broth.

Ingredients: apple cider vinegar, raw honey, lemon, horseradish, onion, garlic, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, sichuan & black peppercorns

Recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, nightshade-free, and GAPS & Paleo Diets-friendly.

Honeydew Tarragon Jun

$10.00
$1.50 Glass Deposit

With honeydew this refreshing drink has a crisp and lively character. Jun is a unique cultured beverage that is made from honey and green tea. Referred to by many as "the champagne of kombuchas," the origins of Jun are shrouded in mystery…some say it originates in Tibet. It uses a culture similar to a kombucha SCOBY or water kefir grains. This is a perfect alternative for those who prefer to avoid all refined sugar, or are on GAPS protocol, as the only sweetener is honey.

Ingredients: filtered water, gunpowder green tea, raw honey, honeydew melon juice, tarragon
