Stone Fruit Shrub

This is the beginning of stone fruit season in many places, and sometimes you get fruit that's not quite what you expected, hard, sour, or rough textured. In the spirit of mottainai I use these imperfect specimens to make a shrub (an old way to preserve fruit), using our Mishmish N33 blend. The best thing is that the fruit is perfectly edible and much improved by the process, the exact opposite of making a shrub with overripe fruit. Add to your desserts, use it to bring life and acidity to savory dishes, to dress up salads, and in cocktails!
