With the popularity of honeybee keeping rising, The Fresh Honey Cookbook (Storey Publishing, 2013) is an invaluable resource for those who keep their own bees, or just want to support local beekeepers in their area. Laurey Masterton presents twelve months worth of recipes that feature seasonal ingredients and different varieties of honey. This Fresh Fruit Shrub Recipe can be found in Chapter 8, “August.”

You can purchase this book from the MOTHER EARTH NEWS store: The Fresh Honey Cookbook.

Here’s another old-fashioned drink along the lines of a Switchel. This one is a tiny bit more complicated, but once you make the basic concentrate, you can add sparkling water anytime you like for a refreshing fruit drink.

Use whatever berries are fresh at the market. Blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries work well.
