 Black Republican Shrub CocktailShrub is a colonial-day drink, using a concentrated syrup made of fruit, vinegar and sugar.

23

These shrub drinks featured the Black Republican Cherry, a Slow Food Ark of Taste product, which were grown Organically at Tamiyasu Orchards in Hood River, OR, and Peak Forest Fruit in Banks, OR. Chef Timothy Wastell, from Firehouse Restaurant in Portland, OR, preserved them as a shrub since being picked in July. It was served with Organic Whiskey from KOVAL Organic Distillery.

The Lewelling Brothers brought the first Black Republican Cherry Trees to the Oregon Territory in 1847. The fruit is small, deep purple in color with an intense Black Cherry flavor. It is also the parent of the Bing Cherry. Today, Black Republican Cherry Plantings are rare, with only about 200 acres remaining in older and smaller orchards in The Dalles and Hood River growing Districts of Oregon, and even fewer in Washington, California and Eastern States.

And YES, a few were SERVED and ENJOYED!!!!!

PERSONALLY GUIDED ORGANIC GOOD FOOD SHOPPING TOURS

Personally Guided Organic Good Food Shopping Tour  PCC 006

My Good Food Friends –

• PERSONALLY GUIDED ORGANIC GOOD FOOD SHOPPING TOURS •

We make it real easy for you to ENJOY Organic Good Foods all day, every day, even if you’re on the run, a single parent, a harried soccer Mom & Dad, a gourmet or an “I hate to cook” type.

Conducted by Dennis L. Weaver, Your Good Food Guide

The Personally  Guided Organic Good Food SHOPPING Tour introduces the concept of feeling good, by making Organic Good Food Choices, to people who are concerned about their health and lifestyle, but don’t know how or where to start.

We will recommend a Store in your neighborhood. We show you how to use the Store. We show you how to make very simple changes in your food choices that will help you look good and feel good.

With good-natured humor, solid information and real-life stories to inform, encourage, coach and inspire you, we open a whole new World of Organic Good Food Choices. You’ll learn how to choose foods that are life-giving, NOT life-diminishing … the ONLY foods that let you live with a zest and zeal for life. Feel the way you were designed to feel!

Because, what you don’t know about your food could hurt you!

The TOUR is designed to be FUNMEMORABLE … INFORMATIVEENCOURAGING. The TOUR is an Organic Good Food Choices SEMINAR on ‘two legs.’ It’s a walking, talking, tasting, having-a-good-time learning experience … POSITIVE, LIFE-CHANGING!

From non-organic

From non-organic Tully’s coffee to BRAGG® Liquid Aminos in one step! Now, THAT’S Tour POWER!

 Learn to spot label lies!

Linda, after being caught up in the DELISH FUN of The Tour, said, “This is going to be my  personal treat: A slice of MANNA© Organics Sprouted Whole Grain ‘Fruit & Nut’ Manna Bread® with ORGANIC VALLEY® Family of Farms Whole Milk Ricotta Cheese and topped with Italian bionaturæ® Organic Apricot Fruit Spread!”

And if we would have found a bottle of BADGER MOUNTAIN Organic Port, we would have continued the Tour over at Linda’s house!
