  • 3 cups organic blueberries
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 4 - 5 organic dried rose buds*

  • 1 Kraut Source unit

1. Make salt brine by dissolving sea salt in filtered water.
2. Place blueberries, rose buds and cinnamon stick into jar.
3. Pour brine into jar until it is one inch above the top of the ingredients.
4. Place your Kraut Source unit on according to directions.
5. Place your ferment in a cool spot in your kitchen, away from direct sunlight.
6. Allow to ferment for 7 - 8 days.
   (Best temperature is between 65F to 75F.)

I made with with 1 cinnamon stick, 4 cardamom pods, and 2 cloves (I didn’t have any rosebuds or vanilla beans). They’re delicious!
