Well this may be my last blog for awhile I’m nearly ready to hit the road and it will take me awhile to settle into a routine and figure out how to use my solar power system ect for laptop.
I visited a friend to say good bye this weekend gone and they gave me some gorgeous beets to use, mine didn’t do so well this year and I was wrapped at the thought of having some energizing lush kvass before my big trip begins I wont be doing to much fermenting where I’m heading I think it will be to hot in the van but I will experiment here n there.
Also I have to brag that whilst at my friends place we indulged in freshly caught abalone or sea mutton and cray fish….. I like abalone raw and couldn’t wait to have a slice my friends tried it raw to for the first time and liked it this way also, then to the big red steaming cray, I picked the best part of the cray of course the head an upper body bit were the legs join into the body, hehe it was amazing and I actually liked the cray better than the abalone, my taste are changing as abalone used to be my favorite food but I’m not so sure know…. I think I like cray and sea snails (Warreners) the best.
Anyway back to the kvass, I chopped the beets some kale and a hand full of sow thistles (Sonchus sp.) buds and all and stuffed this into 2 jars, I then made a week brine solution about 1 heaped tables spoon salt to the 31/2 liters of water I poured this over the mix placed a large silver beet leaf on top of the mix to hold down any floaties then I put my pebbles on top of this and covered it all with cloth. Now it is just a matter of waiting for it to brew YUM!
