Place the berries and rose petals in the mason jar. Fill to the top with water and screw on the lid. Shake a few times a day. Done in 2-3 days. Strain out the liquid and compost the fruit and petals. Drink on up! Keep refrigerated afterwards.
Super-duper easy to make! It's like making a fermented tea!
You can easily make a Kvass using just ONE fruit. Like this:
Variation: Apple Kvass: replace berries and rose with 1-2 small apples. Core apples and dice. Place apples in jar and add water to the top. Screw on lid and let ferment 1-2 days. Done when apples look "cooked" and/or there are bubbles on the top.
Another Variation, Berry Kvass: instead of the apples, use 1 pint of fresh raspberries, blueberries or strawberries. To the berries or to the apple kvass, you can add in 1 TBsp of raw honey OR coconut nectar (this will make the fermented tea much sweeter). You can also add in fresh or dried rose petals or buds with the fruit, if you like.
You can drink this straight as is or add to smoothies and juices. Kvass has some nice probiotics to help repopulate your gut flora :)
Tip: Push down on lid to test for amount of C02 buildup. If it doesn't pop or push down, open lid to release gas, then screw back on.
As always, Enjoy :)
