Vinegar Friday -- Feed Me Seymour!


It's the final Vinegar Friday of the year and, considering the season, I thought it would be a good time to focus on how to preserve live Christmas trees. The secret? You have to feed them.

Oh great. It's not like I don't already have 5,000 things to do.

I know, I know. But it's really not that hard.

Do you remember the movie, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS? I love the movie. It's funky. It's fun. And it has catchy tunes. If you haven't seen it, it's about a plant that needs a special plant food every day... blood! But don't worry, there will be no finger pricking for this Christmas tree food recipe. It's just three simple ingredients.
  • 1 gallon water
  • 2 cups light corn syrup
  • 4 tsp. vinegar (any kind will do)
Mix them all together and feed/water your tree. The food (light corn syrup) helps nourish the tree and the acidic quality of the vinegar helps the tree to drink up. Cheers!

Here's wishing you a merry Christmas tree and a very happy Vinegar Friday!

Keeping it green with vinegar,
