Water Kefir Grains are live probiotics in the form of soft, jelly-like ‘grains’ from a cactus plant. When healthy and fed, these grains will continue to grow and multiply and produce an endless supply of water kefir. 

Use Water Kefir Grains to make naturally gut-healthy, bubbly water kefir at home! It’s as easy as mixing sugar into water - our Water Kefir Grains will do the rest. 

Don’t worry, the sugar isn’t for you. The grains will metabolize the sugar during the fermentation process and the final kefir water will be very low in sugar. 






INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 large tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, diced
  • 1-2 jalepeños, diced
  • Clove of garlic, minced
  • Handful of fresh cilantro
  • Lemon and lime juice to taste
  • One of the following:
    • 2 tsp. salt
    • 1-2 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup whey
    • 1-2 tsp. salt and 1/4 cup water kefir

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Mix all the ingredients together including the salt, whey, or finished kefir.
  2. Place the salsa in a fermentation container, pressing down to release some liquid. Ideally the vegetables should be submerged under the liquid. Add a bit of extra water if needed.
  3. Ferment for 2+ days at room temperature.

Once the fermentation period is complete, the salsa can be removed to a storage container and stored in the refrigerator or root cellar.
