Default Kvass...Another Fermented Drink

I know...I'm probably boring the patooties out of readers that aren't into fermenting things, but I came across another fermented drink that looks interesting: Kvass. It's a fizzy drink that uses fermented grains, or starches as it's fermenting source...kind of like beer, but non-alcoholic. Like Ginger Bug, Kombucha and Water Kefir, you can add fruits and other flavorings to change the flavor profile. It tastes more like soda pop than beer. Here's a recipe for Sweet Potato Kvass: https://www.growforagecookferment.co...-potato-kvass/

Apple kvass is good too. I want to make the old fashioned kind but all the russian delis around here are closed so I can't get the bread.
I guess I could order from the online deli. I wish the stuff would take off here. My daughter and I used to go to the russian deli and buy kvass and some little chocolate covered wafers with a squirrel on the box. Tasty stuff.

Oh...I'll have to try apple kvass. Is it a lot like cider?

I started some carrot kvass the other day and it's bubbling away. I don't know when it's ready. I've never tasted it before. I'm thinking of adding some ginger to it.

I've read that the Russian Kvass is started with black bread.

Loved the carrot kvass. It couldn't be much cheaper to make. Just one, grated carrot and a couple of tablespoons of sugar, in a quart of water.
