      I have never forgiven Adam Rapo for giving you a hard time in this video. We are big fans of the Brad Leone humor in our house, always tune into new episodes. Carry on.

    Can’t image drinking beet kvass. For me it’s always been fermented bread and that’s pretty much it.

            Fun fact: in lebanon we pickle our beets we also pickle white turnips and add beets for coloring..

            Other fun fact; we put sumac on our cheese sandwiches..

                        It’s like he’s never had pickled beets before. Am I the only one who grew up eating cans of pickled beets?

                              without brad BA would be little to nothing. Without Adam Ratton, however...I think we’d be completely fine

                                I like that Brad's a messy cook and he just assumes it and is really successful despite that. Because I'm also a super messy cook and awkward and I spill everything and hold things in weird ways that seem like I'm gonna drop the pot at any second and some other cooks will scold me for that. And I'm trying my best but waddayawant I'm just awkward and messy. So love having Brad repping us messy cooks out there.

                                  You should make Polish sour pickles!! With horseradish, garlic and wild dille. I love them so much and the only thing I have ever fermented myself

                                    Brad I love you and do not change. Rappoport is just as salty and dead inside as the dead sea. You are a delight and a thing I look forward too.

                                      i understand making your own recipes and stuff but this is not kvass, as it has no rye bread. this is just weird beet drink

                                        Makes me cringe but also laugh so hard at the way he says kvass. Its pronunced more like "quass"

                                            I always thought that kvass was made with rye bread, well at least that's how its made in Eastern Europe. Sometimes we add raisins as well.

                                              He literally said in the beginning of the video that it's usually done with bread but this is a variation.

                                                Brad, my dad makes kvass out of rye bread + mushroom. It’s a big mushroom and it floats at the top. Comes out a light brown. Really delicious!
