Making Fruit and Beet Kvass Demonstration by Celeste Longacre

Celeste Longacre has posted an exciting new video showing us how to make probiotic Fruit Kvass! Probiotics is a big buzz word these days, but buying them at the pharmacy is prohibitively expensive. Watch this video to learn how to put together a fruit kvass (full of probiotics) in under three minutes and for pennies!

  1. Thank you Celeste, I’m definitely going to make both of these, what size jars do you use? & for how long will the fruit & beet kvass keep fresh in the fridge? should I drink it before, with or after a meal?

  2. Thanks for the great video. I tend to have trouble with Kahn yeasts. But I don’t shake it as often as you. Does shaking it reduce the yeasts development?

    • I have invested in the Probiotic Jar Fermenting System and since beginning to use the jars I have no kham yeast in any of my ferments. It is the only truly anaerobic fermenting, properly sealing system as the holes in the glass lids are drilled through with laser rather then rough tools that still let oxygen in. They have air-locks to let gasses escape. The other pickle-it type lids still let air in and regular mason jars allow Grand Canyons worth of air and other undesirable microbes to get in in the early hours and days of a ferment before the numbers of lactic acid bacteria have built up enough to stop or overpower them. I LOVE my jars and will never go back to any other way.

  3. Hi,

    What is the name of the Herb that you put in the fuit Kvass, and how long does it stay fresh in the refrigerator.


    • Hi Peter, You can put almost anything that you personally like into kvass. I like to put turmeric when I can get it fresh as it is a really good anti-inflammatory. If there is an herb that you really like, give it a try.

  4. So no yeasts used, do any of the Kvass bottles send up streams of bubbles or not ?

    If it is fermenting, how ? Using the yeasts all around us in the air ? Something in the fruit or veg?

    Can you do a video please on how to make your own wine by this method? You said something like “if you chop the beets real small you’ll end up with alcohol’.

    Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Much appreciated.

    • Hi Anne, I am not an expert on exactly how these fruits and veggies ferment. I think that it has to do with the lactobacillus that is present in most of them. I don’t know how to make wine–sorry!

  5. Thanks, I have been looking for something simple to add probiotics into my diet. I love kimchee but it is a bit of work. Sauerkraut has never been on my list for anything, but I will make a batch of apple kraut to give it another shot.
    I just mane a fruit kvass with tangerines, watermelon, and fresh pitched mulberries. Can’t wait to try it!

  6. hi there
    thanks for the video, i wanna ask you about tha salt that you use, you said it’s organic one, a real sea salt
    my question is , in case we have an industrial one and non organic, can we use it, if not what can we use instead?
    thanks one more time

  7. Hi Celeste,
    Thank you for the great video on making fruit Kvass. Please remind me the name of the weed you added which has so many vitamins, etc. I played it several times and could not get it, but want to.

    Thank Jack Kinchen

    • Hi Jack, Sorry that it has taken me so long to answer you. I am not the most technically savvy person! Anyway, the weed is called purslane and I have pictures on the blog that I did about it.

  8. Hi Celeste. I make and drink homemade kefir everyday. Can I pour off some of the milk kefir to use in the fruit kvass?
