Kvass is one of the national drinks of Russia and Eastern Europe. It is said that kvass is good for digestion, detox and is most efficient drink for refreshing during a hot summer day. It’s also rich with Vitamin B and it is said that drinking it accelerates the healing process. It is usually made of wheat, rye, rye bread, or barley and buckwheat bread. Kvass is considered as non alcoholic drink but it has a very low alcoholic content (0.7 to 2.2%). Because fermentation is required, it will take you 2-3 days to make kvass.

Ingredients :
2 lt OR 8 cups of water
3 slices of classic black, dark or rye bread
Handful of raisins or 1/4 cup
225 gr of 1 cup of sugar
1/2 Tbsp of dry yeast
1 large plastic soda bottle


Step 1 : Fill your large and deep pot with all the water and bring to a boil.
Step 2 : Toast the bread slices twice on the darkest toaster setting or fry them on a pan until dark. Darker bread makes darker kvass.

Step 4 : On the second day remove toasted bread and discard it.
Step 5 : In a medium bowl, mix together sugar and yeast, add them to kvas mixture and stir.
Step 6 : Cover with plastic wrap or lid and leave the mixture on the counter for another 6 hours, stirring every couple hours.
Step 7 : Discard floating raisins by scooping them up with a large spoon.
Step 8 : Using strainer or cheese cloth, pour kvass into bottles, close with a lid and leave them in the fridge overnight. Enjoy cold!

Квас восстанавливает силы и является основой многих блюд русской кухни, чаще холодных похлебок. Самая популярная из них на сегодняшний день - это окрошка. Хлебный квас, я думаю, знают все с самого детства. Этот простой русский напиток очень освежает в жару и дает силы. В моем детстве был всегда праздник, когда к нам приезжала бочка с квасом. Всегда выстраивалась очередь и народ очень быстро раскупал эту бочку. Как сделать хлебный квас, если в жаркий день очень хочется отведать своего ядреного холодного напитка?

3 ломтика ржаного хлеба
Горсть изюма
