Michael Dietsch makes this summer shrub by combining raspberries and thyme, first sweetening the raspberries with sugar and allowing them to macerate before combing them with thyme-infused apple cider vinegar.
What results is a perfectly floral and tart shrub that can be topped with soda water and gin for a summer cocktail or mixed into a grassy olive oil to make a salad dressing.
