Now that i can have beets again i want to make beet kvass.  I made it a couple of years ago but can't remember how i did it.

Does anyone have a recipe or somewhere they can refer me to?.  If i remember correctly i think i may have gotten the recipe from Ruthie when i made it a couple of years ago.

Thanks!
Mickey

I chop up one beet into cubes about half an inch per side. I put that in a glass jar. The one I use holds about a quart. Sometimes I also add some cut up fresh ginger, chopped much finer. Then I add salt (a teaspoon?) and filtered water and a little bit from the last batch as a "starter", cover with the metal lid, and let it sit on the counter for about 2 days. I prefer to drink it chilled.

Sometimes I use the beets in a salad after I've finished the liquid, but sometimes I just throw them out. If I re-use the beets for a second batch, they're pretty bland and won't taste good in a salad.

When I'm making a new batch (and don't have an old batch to use as a starter) I'll open up a capsule of polyflora O instead. If that's not available (or, what I used to do  before I bought any polyflora) I'll use a little bit more salt and let it sit on the counter for 3 days instead of two.

Thanks Ruthie!  

If i remember correctly you don't peel the beets, is that right?.

I'm looking forward to get some probiotics in my system the inexpensive way.

I just scrub the beets with my veggie brush. I peel them if they're a little on the old side and I need to remove the icky parts.

I still haven't made the beet kvass even though i bought some beets over 2 weeks ago, i've been busy taking care of my sick kitty.  I just pulled them out of the crisper and the leaves were bad but the beets still look like they might be ok.  I'm wondering if it's worth making beet kvass with these beets or should you make beet kvass only from fresh beets?.  

Thanks!
Michele

fresh is best, to let out the juices

Thanks Lola!

I'll do something else with these beets and then get fresh for the kvass.

Beet roots last for weeks in the fridge, if not months. The greens, however, only last a few days. I usually separate them when I put them away.

The beets you have already are perfectly fine. This recipe adds water anyway.
