• Let’s make Kombucha!

    A few weeks ago I conquered growing my very own baby SCOBY.  Now I’m going to tell you how to make and flavor your Kombucha.  There are so many sites that offer great insight on brewing Kombucha.  I can’t claim to have used one recipe, but rather combined a few processes and then developed flavors […]
