Jujubes (or red Chinese dates) are available from KT Farms. Jujubes make a great fruit infusion or “tea” that is warming and delicious, great for cooler fall or winter evenings.
1 pound of halved jujubes
2 Asian pears (quartered, not peeled)
3 cinnamon sticks
2 inches ginger root (scrubbed, sliced, not peeled)
1 gallon filtered drinking water
Place all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Cover, and immediately turn down heat and let it simmer slowly for 3 hours. Add more water as needed. Strain and serve warm.
