Background: We have a special process that extracts the entire goodness from the lemon. That’s why it is important that the lemons we use are clean, wax, pesticide and fertilizer free. The lemons are aged at low temperatures and then extracted fully. Then aged again in ACV to bring out the oils without the addition of heat, making a very robust flavor with phenols that traditional store bought lemon juice simply does not have. Our lemons come from a single origin in the Florida panhandle owned cooperatively by a family farm in upstate NY. As always they are non gmo, no waxes, fungicides or insecticides on the fruit or boxes.
Health: There are so many health benefits to lemon. Many are tested and approved by decent research. Specifically, our shub contains a large amount of citrus pectins, not found in the juice but only in the inner rind. That’s where we shine. Soluble fiber, a key to sustained weight loss, improved digestion, lactic and citric bacters that help dial down ambient blood sugar and also improve complex carb metabolism. Assists in pro and prebiotic culture. It’s a super fruit that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Not only are lemons healthy but they also have a pleasant taste and smell that make them a great addition to foods and drinks.
Uses: Salad dressings in any direction, water flavor du jour, meat marinade and tenderizer (chicken), finishing vinegar, and cocktail mixer (think sours here).
We extract the flavor and juices from fruit harvested here in the Finger Lakes region whenever possible. This helps produce the vibrant color and flavor of our small-batch shrub. There are no flavor enhancers, preservatives, or colorants. Ever! Taste the Finger Lakes Harvest difference!
