Beet Kvass

View Fermenting Foods First

The fermented beets in this recipe are wonderful but the feature is really the fermented juice
that is made during the process. It is a great digestive tonic and can be used as a delicious
vinegar in salad dressings. Additional options to add before filling the jars could be ginger,
lemon, orange, or spices.


  • 4 large or 6 medium beets, peeled and chopped roughly
  • 5 tbsp sea salt


  1. Clean and chop beets into quarters.
  2. Combine the sea salt and chopped beets and place in the glass jars.
  3. Fill the jars with water and stir to dissolve salt.
  4. Cover and store in a warm spot
  5. Leave to ferment and when taste is to your liking, store in the fridge to stop the fermentation process.
