In the last few years, many health conscious people have become familiar with kombucha, a fermented sweetened tea, however, there are many other probiotic fermented beverages that are beneficial for our health.
In this class, you’ll learn how to make healthy naturally fermented probiotic beverages such as beet kvass (fermented beet juice), lacto-fermented ginger ale, and a nettle probiotic herbal tonic.
We’ll discuss the nutritional benefits of probiotic beverages as well as the cost-savings of making these beverages (they can be made for pennies on the dollar!). You’ll sample the drinks and everyone will get recipes to take home.
