BERRY BURST RECIPE
MAKES: about 4 cups
4 cups first ferment
1/2 cup mixed berries fresh or frozen
- Make the first ferment and leave the jar in a warm place for 24-48 hours.
- Strain the grains and add the ingredients to the swivel top bottle with the first ferment water kefir.
- Seal up the swivel top bottle and leave it in a warm place for 24 hours for the second ferment.
- Open slowly, strain and enjoy!
NEED TO KNOW:
It’s best if you squeeze the berries a bit before you add them to your second ferment so that the water kefir can penetrate them all the way through and make sure you eat them after you strain the ferment. They will be saturated with live probiotics.
This berry soda will give your immune system a boost of over 30 billion live probiotics, magnesium, B vitamins, folate, vitamin K, electrolytes, enzymes, antioxidants and vitamin C.
Refrigerate immediately for up to 8 weeks before it turns to vinegar.
