Fruit soda or fruit kvass is very easy to make and is a healthy refreshment!
Simply fill a 1 liter jar with fruit, add 2 tablespoons of honey and top it up with water.
Cover the lid lightly and stir 3-4 times a day.
Depending on the temperature, in a day or two, you’ll see the bubbles on top which are the yeast.
Basically the yeast on the fruit feed on the sweet water and multiply.As they eat sugars,they produce gas! By stirring often, we mix the fruit so it doesn’t get moldy, and help to distribute the yeast, so they work evenly.
