Beet and Turmeric kvass tonic
I love fermented drinks. BUT. They are so, dang, expensive! It’s nice to know that there are a few clever kids out there doing a bit of trial and error and creating pretty fancy pants recipes for drinks like this kvass tonic.
My last foray into ferments, ended up a bit of a disaster. Ginger-ade that funkified itself on my bench top. Gross. That said, I have had success with beets and sauerkraut. So perhaps this kvass tonic is my next time to shine!
I’m keen to make amends with this pink brew and hopefully be able to do as the recipe suggests and sustainably pour off and bottle the tonic, and make a second batch with the same ingredients. Here’s hoping!
Plans also in the works to try the beets in a salad afterwards and try the turmeric raw…why not!
I’ll report back in 2-6 days!
