Beetroot Mary Anyone?

Happy Easter all!

It’s warm and Spring like here and I’m enjoying the sun on the balcony with my new favourite apero drink…. a Beetroot Mary!

Beet kvass is on the probiotic list of my diet plan (150ml) and I make it every week. It’s easier than kombucha or kefir and as a bonus we get to eat the beetroot (it’s raw it’s crunchy and full of probiotics… or you can roast it like normal)

I buy organic beetroot. Wash and dice, pop into a Kilner jar, sprinkle a tablespoon of good salt over it and then top up with water. I also like to add grated ginger too (you don’t need to peel it)

Lid on, and leave in a warmish room for a few days.

You can see bubbles form after a day or so, and I usually taste every day until it’s sour and salty and beetrooty!

Then strain out the beetroot and bottle the liquid, which keeps in the fridge for ages.

I use the same beetroot twice before replacing with a new batch.

It’s messy but worth it!

I enjoy a glass over ice with tobasco, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, salt and a slice or lemon. It’s the perfect replacement for my beloved Bloody Mary!

Cheers!
