Aqua Fresca with Rhubarb, Kiwi, and Herbs or Looking for Refreshment in all the Wrong Places…

I just tasted the drink I made for today’s video, and oh my, it is refreshing!   We talked about Aqua Fresca, or flavored water.  We used the following

2 cups cold water, bottle, filtered, whatever you use

1 stalk garden fresh rhubarb

1 kiwi (not local)

2 mint leaves, a few arugula leaves, and a couple basil leaves
Simply mix ingredients together and roughly blend or mash with you preferred implement!  Let sit for 15 minutes or more, strain and served chilled.  It really is best if it sits in the fridge overnight, but I rarely have such foresight.
It was great seeing so many of you at the Sheboygan Farmer’s Market last Saturday. I will be on Fox 11 Good Day WI around 7:45 on Saturday morning to promote the premier of the youtube show, Under the Apple Tree.  I have had so much fun working on this project and seeing it come together.  I hope you all enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed working on it so far.  It will be a once a week show focusing on sensible and fun ways to have a more handmade life.  Recipes for eating fresh and local, home projects, gardening and yard endeavors and more will be explored. It’s going to be a blast.  Please follow the show on Twitter @appletreeshow and YouTube “Under the Apple Tree”.  Click here for the video for this recipe Chef Todd talks Aqua Fresca.

Thanks again for following! See you soon.
