Today’s video shows you how to make beet kvass. Beets are chock full of nutrients and fermenting them as shown in the video is extremely beneficial to those with any sort of digestive complaints. Beets are highly cleansing to the liver, so those with liver issues benefit from consuming beet kvass on a regular basis.
As a tonic, beet kvass is recommended first thing in the morning and after your evening meal. Just 4 ounces or so is all you need to sip. This highly nutritious superfood is far better than taking a multivitamin!
I’m sipping a morning glass of beet kvass as I type this! What a great way to start the day and rev up your digestion each morning!
Beet Kvass (from Nourishing Traditions Cookbook)
1 large or 2 medium organic beets, tops removed
1/8 cup liquid whey
1/2 TBL sea salt
Wash and peel beets and slice into chunks no smaller than about 1/2 inch across.
Put beet chunks into a clean, 1 quart mason jar. Add whey, sea salt, and enough filtered water to fill all but 1 inch from the top of the jar. Stir and mix well. Close lid and leave on the counter for 1-2 days. Refrigerate.
When all but an inch or so of liquid is left in the jar, refill with more filtered water, stir, and close the lid again and leave on the counter for 2 days more. Refrigerate and use.
When all the liquid is used up from the second batch, discard the beets and start again.
