Fermented Elderberry & Honey Soda– a Delicious Probiotic Drink!

I may receive a commission if you purchase something mentioned in this post. More details here.

Hi all, I wanted to let you know that I have a guest post this week over at Empowered Sustenance for this super-delicious soda.

I do a lot of home brewing of ciders and wines, but it’s really nice to have something quick and kid-friendly on-hand, too.  This is a great way to use foraged berries.   You can use this method for any fruit, really, and it’s very similar to my method for making fermented rhubarb & honey soda.IMG_0902What is extra-special about this Fermented Elderberry & Honey Soda is that it’s a great one to have around during cold and flu season– both the honey and the elderberries are powerful anti-virals.  The soda is a probiotic, so it’s a very well-rounded, healthy drink for the whole family!

Check out the full recipe here.  (You will also find a discount coupon I made for her readers for my cookbook, which you are also free to take advantage of for the next few days.)

    Hello Ariana, thank you for your wonderful receipes and great photos 🙂
    I really enjoyed reading all the articles in Homebrewing category. I wanted to ask you – have you tried to ferment some fresh berries, without boiling them?
    I have tried to do it with fresh raspberry juice, buto some fruit worms appeared (or at least they look like cherry worms) and I don’t know what to do now with the drink. Do you have any experience in this? Thank you 🙂
