Kvass is great for the whole family but sometimes 'sour' is a new flavour profile for little ones to wrap their head and taste buds around, especially in western diets.
Making Kvass jellies is a great way to introduce Kvass and, if making with gelatin, you get the added bonus of those gut soothing properties.

Kvass Jellies Recipe
50g (2TBS) Grass Fed Gelatin
150mls Apple juice to bloom
250mls Beetroot Kvass
50g (2 TBS) Raw Honey (for babies is older than 1yr)
50g (2TBS) boiling water
small silicon moulds for setting/shaping
Method In a small saucepan, bloom gelatin in 150g of Apple juice by sprinkling the gelatin over the juice, Set aside for 2 mins. Add 2 TBS of boiling water to your raw honey (if using) to dissolve/thin out, add this to your apple juice mix. On your stove top, using the lowest heat, really gently heat and stir the bloomed gelatin and Honey mix. As soon as it’s melted (approx 1min) Removed instantly. DO NOT BOIL. Leave to cool for 5-10mins. Add the 250mls of cold kvass. Stir together gently. Pour into desired moulds, you can use silicon muffin trays if you like Set in fridge for approx 2 hours. For older children (above 1) you can swap out the apple juice for extra kvass and add in the honey for sweetness. You do heat it a little but just gently to dissolve the gelatin, approx 45/50 degrees. My 3 boys like the straight kvass and honey mix the best.
I'll update the post as soon as my computer wants to play ball with links to my favourite Gelatin's for you all. ;-) It's an overcast, raining day and the technology is deciding it wants a day off, do you guys find the same thing happens on rainy days?
