Who makes kombucha? 🙋🏻♀️
Did you know that you can set your kombucha up for a second ferment to add flavor and fizz?
I just poured up a new batch tonight into these flip top bottles and added blood oranges. I let it sit for 2-3 more days until the orange is infused and it becomes this beautiful pink color. It will also become fuzzy and carbonate which can be quite refreshing.
If you decide to try a second ferment, use glass bottles with flip top lids or plastic bottles. Don’t use a glass container with tight fitting lids as it will continue to ferment and build up pressure and jars have been know to break from the pressure build up. It’s a good idea to burp your container once or twice a day.
What flavor will you try? Some of my favorites are….
Blackberry Lime – add fresh or frozen berries and lime slices or zest.
Blueberry Lemon – add fresh or frozen blueberries and lemon slices or zest.
Raspberry – add fresh or frozen raspberries.
Strawberry Basil – add fresh or frozen strawberries and fresh basil.
Mango – add fresh or frozen mango. (Watch out! The sugars in this one cause it to ferment fast.)
Orange – add fresh orange slices with the rind. I like blood oranges, as you can see.
Cranberry Ginger – add fresh or dried cranberries and grated ginger root.
Or come up with your own combo. Use what you have or whatever yummy flavors strike your fancy.
