How to Make Fermented Vegetable Juice
In many countries, fermented vegetable juices are commonly sold in grocery stores and enjoyed regularly by many, usually as a health tonic, but sometimes just because they are tasty.
Fermented vegetable juice is made by placing a small amount of vegetables in a larger amount of liquid, fermenting, then straining out the solids. Beet kvass is a popular fermented vegetable juice. However, fermented vegetable juices can be made with virtually any vegetable.
The only difference between fermenting vegetables and making fermented vegetable juice is that a larger amount of liquid is used, with a smaller amount of vegetables. Add herbs and spices to suit your taste, and you will create a delicious probiotic juice to enjoy daily.
Tip: Fermented vegetable juice will take on the flavor of the ingredients, so be wary of strong flavors such as brassicas or alliums.
Instructions for Basic Fermented Vegetable Juice
Consuming the juice off of regular fermented vegetable batches is another good way to enjoy fermented juices. These juices will be a bit stronger in flavor, but still delicious. Make sure to leave enough juice to cover any remaining vegetables, and enjoy the juice little by little, as vegetables are consumed.
