This past week I went to the farmer's market and bought some fresh vegetables. Among those were a nice bunch of beets. They were just beautiful and earthy looking. I don't usually buy them but I have been wanting to try a new probiotic drink called beet kvass. Here is what I did.
Two medium sized beets cut into large pieces
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
about 4 ounces of whey
1. Cut up your beets and add them to your quart jar.
2. Take a small cup and add your sea salt to your whey and stir good.
3. Then add your salt and whey mixture to your jar and fill to the line or if you don't have a line fill with about an inch of air space at the top and cover withsome type of cloth and rubber band.
4. Wait for 2 days (or one if it is summer and your house is warmer)
Drink about 4 ounces morning and evening for a healthy tonic. You can use the same beets for two batches of beet kvass.
Have you ever made Beet Kvass? I am trying to include more probiotic foods to my diet. So stay tuned for more recipes.
