herbal kvass


  • Handful each of sage, rosemary, and thyme
  • 1 radish, cut into quarters
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • Filtered or non chlorinated water


  1. put all of the herbs, the radish, and the sea salt into your jar and cover with water, leaving about two inches of head space at the top.
  2. Cover with a loose lid, so that the carbon dioxide can escape, and put into a quiet and dark corner of your kitchen for 5-7 days.
  3. You should eventually start to see a few bubbles on the surface, this is a good thing
  4. The water will become slightly cloudy and the herbs may lose a bit of their freshness, but it should smell herbaceous and wonderful. Strain out the herbs and serve chilled, maybe even with a rosemary sprig as a garnish.
