Join Janine for a fun afternoon of making water Kefir and natural sodas. Water kefir is a traditional fermented drink rich in beneficial bacteria and enzymes that produces a fizzy refreshing probiotic beverage. The slightly sweet, slightly fermented taste makes the perfect background for flavorings such as local fruit, homemade juice and herbs.

Water kefir is made with a culture known as Water Kefir Grains (also known as Tibicos, Japanese Water Crystals, etc.), and is typically fermented for 24 to 48 hours in water and sugar. The culture itself is comprised of bacteria and yeast existing in a symbiotic relationship. The culture does not contain any grains such as wheat, rye, etc. but rather is referred to as a grain for its crystal grain-like appearance.

We will sample some, make some, flavor some, talk about the fizz, health benefits and versatility. You will learn how to make the kind of soda you can feel good about drinking. All participants will leave with a starter water kefir culture with which to make your own natural soda at home.

You will also have the opportunity to purchase a locally raised water kefir culture to continue the process for many months. In addition to all the fermentation learning, Janine will provide a tasting of her local honey and fermented vegetables.
