Beach Plum Shrub That's a Drink, Not a Plant

Shrub is a colonial soda made with fresh fruit, vinegar, and sugar. This week on the Local Food Report, Elspeth Hay talks with a Wellfleet cook using local beach plums to make this old-fashioned soda. You can find recipes for raspberry shrub and beach plum shrub and a list of cocktail ideas with shrub on Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore.
