How to Make Beet Kvass and why

Beet Kvass Recipe



Yield 6 +

An inexpensive health tonic of fermented beet juice that is a healthy, salty, and earthy health booster!



  1. Wash beets and peel if not organic or leave skin on if organic
  2. Chop beet in to small cubes, but don't grate.
  3. Place beets in bottom of a half gallon glass jar.
  4. Add whey/sauerkraut juice and salt. If you don't want to use whey or sauerkraut juice, you can double the salt instead, though it may take longer to ferment.
  5. Fill jar with filtered water.
  6. Cover with a towel or cheesecloth and leave on the counter at room temperature for 2 days to ferment.
  7. Transfer to refrigerator and consume as desired. I drink 3-4 ounces each morning and night.
