COMING AUGUST 1ST … HERB STORE FAVORITES
An ebook with the recipes from Olde Thyme Garden’s cookbooklet originally published in 2003. It contains recipes from herbal food contests held in the store in Upland, California and at three herb festivals in Upland.
Here’s a recipe to get you started during these hot summer days — GINGER LEMONDADE.
If a nice cool, refreshing glass of iced tea on these sizzling days soothe you — check out the tea line from Trisha’s Kitchen. These 8 teas were the top sellers at Olde Thyme Gardens. The teas are available now, along with TWO GREAT AUGUST SPECIALS! The four top selling dip mixes (a Chef Greg’s line purchased from Black Pearl Gardens in 1998) will be available soon.
Here’s a nice refreshing drink with a different twist. It’s especially nice on a hot, summer day. I’d often make it and have it available to serve to customers on a busy Saturday during the summer.
6 cups water
1 ¼ cups sugar
¼ cup grated, peeled fresh ginger
1 ¼ cups fresh lemon juice (about 7 large lemons)
¼ cup fresh lime juice
Lemon and, or lime slices (optional)
Combine 1 cup water, sugar, and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute, or until sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and cool.
Strain ginger mixture through a sieve into a pitcher, and discard solids.
Add 5 cups water and juices.
Serve over ice, and garnish with lemon and lime slices, if desired.
Makes approximately 8 cups lemonade.
