A delicious and naturally bubbly probiotic drink made with fresh-squeezed lemons and honey.
If you want to save your lemon skin, remove it with a carrot grater or zester, then set aside. Juice your lemons. Strain out seeds and large chunks of pulp.
Combine lemon juice, honey, and water in large GLASS jars (or non-reactive metal like stainless steel). Don't use plastic (even food-safe plastics in our opinion), or you risk the plastic leaching into your drink. Cover jar opening with a breathable fabric like linen or a paper towel and hold in place with a string or rubber band. Keep at room temperature and out of the sunlight throughout the fermentation process.
Stir mixture at least twice daily - we stir in the morning when we wake up and at night before going to bed. Taste a small amount to keep track of flavor and bubble development. After 3-4 days, you'll notice bubbles start to form. After a week, microbial activity will increase significantly and it should start to taste wonderful.
Arrest fermentation any time you want between Days 7-20 by putting it in the fridge with a permanent lid on. Store for several months in the fridge or until it's all gone! Drink as-is or use as a base for mixed drinks.
