Wordless Wednesday: Carbonation

I’m learning how to make water kefir soda, not to be confused with the milk kefir that you buy in the grocery store.

Some little boys thought we would be using a bucket and a pulley to obtain our water.

Alas, no such thing existed at this modern spring well.

But we still had fun.  Anything can become a field trip or a learning experience when you home school!

From this water high in minerals and these weird water kefir grains . . .

and you get a natural, carbonated drink.

It requires some caution when you open the bottle.   Even a towel.

No . . . this has what you would call . . . a little fizz.

And lots of it.

The best part . . . it’s natural.  It is like drinking a probiotic in a bottle.
