Water Kefir Flavor Experiments

Water Kefir Experiments

If you’ve read any of my posts before you know I don’t like to change my routine. When I find something I like I stick to it. And, I admit, I’m lazy when it comes to fermenting. That’s why for the past few years I’ve flavored my water kefir with lemon juice and maybe a few berries. It’s yummy, it gets fizzy, and my kiddo likes it so why change? Well this year I’ve been hankering for something a bit different so I decided to experiment a bit….

Winter is my favorite time of year for culturing. While water kefir and dairy cultures can be challenging when it’s cold both outside and in, fermented vegetables are the best ever!
