Editor's Note

Cranberry Shrub:
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup frozen cranberries

Combine the apple cider vinegar, water, sugar and frozen cranberries in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stir then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is dissolved, occasionally crushing the cranberries to release their juices. Cool, strain, bottle and refrigerate. Will keep for up to one month.

Salt Solution:
75 grams water
25 grams sea salt

Mix until the salt is dissolved.
