Chase also provide advice for harvesting ingredients for maximum flavor and even creating your own backyard beverage garden.

Skip the sugary commercial drinks and make these and many more fresh, delicious beverages in your own kitchen. Whether you’re looking for new ways to enjoy your garden’s bounty or want to experiment with pure concoctions made from farmers’ market finds, these recipes and techniques – including harvesting, canning, fermenting, and pasteurizing – will introduce you to a whole new world of garden goodness.
