Sometimes I feel like a sheep. Following food trends. Is it just a coincidence that I am brewing kombucha while everyone else seems to be? I like to think I'm just curious, and enjoy trying new things. Especially when they promise health benefits!
In the spirit of trying something new: Kvass is similar to kombucha, in that it is also a fermented beverage. I came across it on Green Kitchen Stories (A fabulous and georgeous blog!). While kombucha takes at least a few days, kvass only takes 48 hours! It's light, fresh, tangy, and a little bubbly! This particular brew is a lovely shade of coral. Easy, healthy, delicious - count me in!
Check out Fermented Fruit Kvass for the method, the comments are also informative!

Exact measurements will depend on the size of your jar. Make sure your fruit is washed well. Also a good idea to wash your jar with vinegar and hot water.
