Day 0



Day 7


Cleaning enzyme
10 parts water1 part brown sugar (don't use white sugar)
3 parts kitchen waste (best with citrus peel, apple skins, papaya skins, pineapple flesh, cucumber peel, tomatoes, pandan leaves, dragon fruit skins)
1 plastic air tight container (don't use glass container)

Mix water and sugar. This should fill up the container up to about 60%. Cut the kitchen waste and add to the mixture. This should fill the container up to about 80%. Stir and close. Keep away from sunlight for 3 months.

For the first month, you need to stir and release the gas (product of the fermentation process) on a daily basis. When you open the container, you will hear the Psst sound (after a few days or so). You continue to open the container once a day until you don't hear the psst sound anymore. (This gas buildup is the reason you don't use glass container).

After 3 months, the ideal color should be dark brown. If it turns black, add more sugar and let it ferment a little longer.

I hope you enjoy it as well....

  3. Sounds interesting might try it. Thanks.
    However that's a lot of honey for each batch 1/3 of a liter.
    And any Idea what the resulting alcohol content is, given most people would want to avoid alcohol in a health drink.
