Today’s Q & A is one of my own questions. I’ve had it since I began making Kombucha. “Since honey has anti-microbial properties, can one use it in fermented beverages and fermented foods? Or will it kill the mother culture?”
This week for Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), you’ll hear a funny tale of a scoby (mother culture for the fermented Kombucha beverage) gone wild!
Yesterday I shared a simple recipe for making water kefir, along with some flavoring ideas. That was putting the cart a bit before the horse, in that I didn’t tell you much about what makes water kefir so great. But it should have gotten you excited to try it, based on the flavor possibilities and its being very soda-like! Let’s talk now about what makes water kefir special.
My Tuesday Twister posts are my weekly round-up of what’s going on in my kitchen and our lives, as it pertains to real food. So here we go – this week in my kitchen, I made a probiotic and creamy chocolate ice cream, we tried out a new flavor for water kefir, we tried Vital Choice canned sockeye salmon for the first time, and I pitted my Vita-Mix against my friend’s countertop appliance claiming to grind sprouted flour.
