Ingredients:
  • 12 Organic Lemons (Locally Grown if possible. We love Boyer Ranch’s Meyer Lemons)
  • 1 pound of Organic Strawberries (Locally Grown if possible. We love our Blue Heron Farm’s Strawberries)
  • 2½ quarts of Filtered or Spring Water (do not use tap water as the chlorine or other substances could interfere with the fermentation process)
  • ¾ cup of Organic Sugar
  • 1 cup of whey (to learn how to make whey, click here)
  • 1 gallon glass container
Here's how to make this dish:
  • Juice the 12 organic lemons
  • Clean the organic strawberries, removing the stems and cutting into 4 pieces
  • Add the organic lemons, organic strawberries and organic sugar to the a blender.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Strain out any large chunks of strawberries.
  • Place in a one gallon glass container.
  • Add the whey.
  • Cover the jar with a dishtowel.
  • It will take 2-5 days to ferment. (The longer it ferments, the more sugar with be eaten up by the bacteria. I usually ferment it 4-5 days, but it depends on how warm your kitchen is)
  • You will know it is done when it is bubbly, fizzy, tangy and less sweet.
  • When it is done, place in smaller containers and move to the refrigerator.
