Switchel is amazing stuff when you're mowing hay with a scythe or hilling tobacco.
And at the end of the day, a shot of Crown Royal Green Apple makes it even amazinger!

Glad you caught the frog thing, I was wondering how a lime or lemon flavored frog would taste
No problem, mate. Those tars were used to gray beef, shriveled wormy apples, and biscuits from mealy flour. It's all just more protein. The real problem is keeping the beggars fresh.

I was talking to my 80 year old Stepmother about switchel. She grew up on the hills of Pennsylvania. She remembers having switchel while bringing in the hay every year when growing up.

I used Bragg's organic apple cider vinegar. I don't have the capacity, nor desire, to make my own vinegar.


I just don't find it "refreshing". I'll have to continue to manage with just water. ;)
I found a black tea that I like, so I have been making ice tea lately.
