This was not my project. I don’t even really like Kombucha. But I couldn’t watch it die in the huge glass jars above the refrigerator, so here I am researching Kombucha recipes. I did decide though that if I am taking over the Kombucha making I am going to make it my way, with lots of sugar. My husband has always liked it more on the vinegary side.
Wait wait…What is Kombucha you ask? Kombucha is a fermented tea beverage made by adding a “Scoby”, a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast, to a tea and sugar drink mixture. Its like making vinegar that is drinkable. Sounds great right? Well its great because there are a lot of health benefits to this magical tea. It contains vitamins B and C, amino acids, antioxidants and probiotic microorganisms!
So two hours and three gallons of tea later MY Kombucha is resting nicely in its big glass jars on top of the refrigerator. And oh the plans I have for it when it’s done. No more plain vinegary kombucha in this house. Now there will sweet fresh kombucha for us to enjoy. I may even flavor a few jars… That will teach him.
