Fermented Fruit Soda

Join the fermentation revolution! Thanks to CSA Member Naomi Lewis (Berkeley), Nutritionist and Mama to two daughters, for passing along this probiotic recipe.

Ingredients and Supplies

1 glass quart jar
1/3 cup water kefir grains (can be purchased online or at some health food stores)
1/4 cup Rapadura sugar or organic cane sugar
Approximately 1 cup sliced fruit (strawberries, peaches, apricots) - this week's Golden Sweets could just be cut in half with pit removed

Preparation
1. Fill the jar with filtered water, sugar and kefir grains. Lid can be loose or tight. 2. Leave on counter for 48 hours and no more than that, then strain liquid.
3. Add fruit of your choice or other flavorings (ginger or herbs) to the strained liquid. Place liquid and fruit into a new jar, tighten the lid and leave on counter for another day.
5. Put liquid in fridge to chill and then enjoy!

You may save the drained kefir grains to be used again to start another batch of soda.
