Get Into the Switchel
Did you know that The Local Store carries Switchel? Do you know what switchel is? YOU SHOULD. Switchel is a sweet, ginger-infused root farmer's beverage made popular by the haymakers who drank it during the 19th-century in the Midwest.
In The Long Winter, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes a switchel-like beverage that her mother had sent for Laura and her father to drink while haying: "Ma had sent them ginger-water. She had sweetened the cool well-water with sugar, flavored it with vinegar, and put in plenty of ginger to warm their stomachs so they could drink till they were not thirsty. Ginger-water would not make them sick, as plain cold water would when they were so hot."
