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!
