Beets have a therapeutic effect on the liver and gallbladder already but when you make this fermented beverage you will also add great benefits to the digestive tract.
The simplest way to make this beverage is to fill a one gallon container (must have a lid) 1/3 full with cubed unpeeled beets. Add the distilled water and fill one inch from the top. Add 3-4 tbsp of salt, cover with lid, and set aside in a dark corner at room temperature for 3-4 days (may take longer to ferment during cooler temperatures).
When the beets are slightly bubbly, but not moldy, then it is done. Mold is not bad but be sure to scrape it off. At this point, the beets can be removed or they can be left in (most people do not eat the beets). Refrigerate and consume 4 oz. daily.
