Blueberry soda

Are your family members not so keen on the idea of fermented foods? We’ve got a secret weapon that can get anyone interested- blueberry soda! And if they don’t like blueberries you can sub out strawberries, raspberries, any berries! Just make sure that they’re organic; conventionally grown berries are notorious for nasty pesticides.


Ingredients

  • 4 cups organic blueberries
  • 1 cup organic sugar, dehydrated cane juice or rapadura
  • 1/2 cup whey or another starter culture
  • 2 quarts filtered water

Instructions

  1. Put your blueberries and sugar in filtered or spring water and simmer for about 20-30 minutes.
  2. Cool to room temperature, then strain out the blueberry pulp through a strainer or cheesecloth.
  3. Transfer your blueberry juice to a 2 quart glass ball jar
  4. Add whey or your other starter culture, lid with your GoFerment lid and let it ferment for at least 3 days. Look for visible signs of fermentation via a slight fizziness. If you’d like a less sweet soda, let it ferment longer as the bacteria will continue to feed on the sugars. You can go as long as 10 days but 5 days seems to be a perfect length of time. Don't forget to taste the soda as you go so you know what sweetness works for you and your family!
  5. Transfer your delicious blueberry soda to soda bottles if you have them, or any kind of flip-top bottle with a tight seal. 
  6. Keep your bottles of soda at room temperature and check every day. Make sure to open the bottles every day to let some of the gasses escape. After a few days, you can move the bottles to your refrigerator where the fermentation will dramatically slow down.
