Kefir, a symbiotic culture of wholesome yeast and good bacteria that ferments either milk or water, is regarded as the next big thing in probiotics. Simply mix kefir grains with water and some sort of raw sugar and ferment on the worktop for a couple of days. You can then strain the grains out (and re-use them again and again) and ferment a second time with different flavourings to result in a ‘good for you’ fizzy drink.
- soft brown sugar 4 tbsp
- filtered or bottled water 750ml
- water kefir grains 1 packet
- lime 1, sliced to serve
- soft brown sugar 2-3 tbsp
- limes 5, juiced
If you fancy a change from limeade, swap the limes for lemons or oranges or try a really nourishing blend of root ginger and fresh turmeric – add the finely grated flesh of 25g each of
ginger and turmeric root, along with the sugar for the second ferment.
