I'm having a lot of fun. My mint kvass, after a week of setting in the bottle, has calmed down into a lovely almost-wine tasting herbal brew. Is that the action of the raisins? I need to research this much more.
My family visited this week and I couldn't get them to try it, which i found frustrating. My brother said it smelled like vomit. Nice.
My mother thoughtfully lied to me and said it smelled good. Yay for moms!
They didn't like the smell of the marjoram one any better, even though it smells awesomely like NY pizza.
I have a small fennel batch going, just to see. The fennel in my garden is doing well, and i love fennel in general. I haven't seen any fennel recipes but it seems like something worth trying to get a little kick out of the beverage.
Hmph. People seem interested when I tell them this was what everyone used to drink, but i think, as a society, we've gotten too used to sugary soda to appreciate something old/new.
Anyway, I am renewing my efforts to research this beverage! And will at least write up my recipes thus far in the article area.
