Fermented Soda - Rhubarb starts the season!

Aktualisiert: 7. Mai

Yet another fermented drink in our collection, already famous, Fermented Soda.

As seasons change, we also change the main ingredient of our Soda.

Spring brings us freshness and tartness of Rhubarb.

(German name for a soda is Brause. So here, we have Rhabarber Brause.)

Rhubarb is quite suitable for this job. That is why it is also used in many other things like Rhubarb pies, or Rhubarb compote.

Rhubarb is great, as it is quite sour, so with the edition of sugar, it creates a very delicious and refreshing combination of sweet and sour.

And that is also what we are looking for when we make soda.

The same goes for other fruits. Sour fruits make the best soda. Sweet fruits do not work that well, unfortunately.

So here is our Rhubarb, cleaned and washed.

We cut it up into smaller pieces.

Next, our Rhubarb goes into pots with filtered and revitalized water. Then comes unrefined Organic sugar.

Once the sugar is in, we bring the the whole mixture to boil.

Once the mixture cools off, we strain it.

Then, we mix in our fermented whey (now we use Water Kefir starter, which works equally well to kick start the fermentation process).

Once everything is mixed in, it's bottling time.

When all the soda is bottled, we leave it for about 24 hours in room temperature to start the fermentation process.

Next, our soda goes into fridge for couple of days and then it's time to enjoy!

Ingredients: Filtered & Revitalized Water, Rhubarb, Unrefined Sugar and Fermented Whey.


An Update!

Although Rhubarb starts the season, the soda saga continues throughout the year with other delicious and seasonal fruits.

When we can pick some juicy cherries in June, then we make a Cherry Soda.

Raspberry Soda usually follows the Cherry one.

Raspberry Soda is definitely a big hit!

Next comes the apple season:

With those heirloom varieties we create a magic! A delicious soda that tastes a lot like apple cider.

And the Winter Edition Soda is usually the one made with vanilla.

Vanilla Soda aka Cream Soda is also quite delicious and very addicting.

It is made with real vanilla extract, so it tastes like Vanilla Ice Cream. But with bubbles!
