How to Make Lacto-Fermented Raspberry Soda
- 4 cups organic raspberries
- 1 cup organic cane sugar (dehydrated cane juice or sucanat)
- ½ cup whey
- 2 qts filtered water
Simmer raspberries and sugar in water for about 20 -30 minutes
Cool to room temperature and strain out raspberries
Transfer what's now essentially sugary raspberry juice to a 2 quart glass ball jar or demijohn.
Add whey and let it ferment for at least 3 days. Look for visible signs of fermentation via a slight fizziness. You can let it go longer for a less sweet soda as the bacteria will continue to feed on the sugars and convert them. Taste the soda as you go to get the sweetness you desire.
