1/1 Photo of Beet Kvass
Beet Kvass is a unique tasty slightly tart and salty health beverage. It is lacto-ferment beverage high in nutrients, healthy for the blood, and a nice liver cleanser. And oh wow, I just remembered that my first batch tasted awful. It was too salty because I used store bought commercial whey instead of homemade liquid whey. Commercial whey is concentrated and already salted and I was still experimenting er..ah… perfecting my technique. I thought I didn’t have to bother with all the basics principals of heirloom folk drinks. HA! Yes you do. Search for my Whey recipe. Beet Kvass takes 3 days to properly ferment. You are essentially making a tea made of chopped up organic beets. The beets can be used twice with a little less water for the second batch and 1 tsp of salt if using a cup of the 1st batch of Beet Kvass as carryover. Again with everything I do, please keep clean sterile glass jars – NO DISH-SOAP!!! Use Vinegar water to clean all, and the final rinse with filtered water not the muni-tap water due to the chlorine and the fact that it will kill your ferment culture. You will need a one gallon glass jar. I bought mine at… you guessed it – a second hand store - during the summer. Three days means 72 hours from begin to fridge. Refrigeration slows down the fermenting to nearly a standstill. You can reserve a cup and a few chunks of Beet to keep fermenting at room temperature to make a Beet Vinaigrette for salads in 7 days. But this I have not done myself.
